NAMI’s Webinar on “Starting A Crisis Intervention Team Program”

Dec 8, 2017

Are you interested in helping your community respond better to people with mental illness in crisis? For almost 30 years, crisis intervention team (CIT) programs have brought together police, mental health advocates and mental health professionals to change community responses to crisis situations. Learn from Major Sam Cochran about the key role these partnerships play in creating sustainable change over the long term. And get a sneak peek of a new NAMI resource that lays out the key steps for developing a successful CIT program.

This webinar is suitable for any community partner—law enforcement, NAMI leader, peer, family member or mental health professional—interested in starting a CIT program in their community. Major Cochran presented alongside Laura Usher, NAMI’s Senior Manager of Criminal Justice & Advocacy.
