Crisis Intervention Training
The Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) Program is a collaboration of professionals committed to assisting persons with behavioral health disorders (mental illness, developmental disabilities, Alzheimer’s disease and addictive disease).
This collaboration includes local members of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), mental health service providers family members, and law enforcement officers. The most important aspect of the CIT Program is the training provided to law enforcement officers.
Luzerne/Wyoming CIT was established in October 2012 to help police and first responders better manage situations involving individuals with mental illness.
Law enforcement officers, correctional officers as well as other first responders benefit greatly from the 40 hour training that gives them additional tools to best assist someone with a mental health diagnosis and provide the appropriate assistance to individuals they come into contact with during the course of their duties.
