Anyone can have a mental health crisis. A person has a mental health crisis when they are in a state of mind in which they are unable to cope with and adjust to the recurrent stresses of everyday living in a functional, safe way.  We understand your reluctance to call 911 for assistance, please know that our community has taken steps to improve mental health crisis response.

Come learn about the Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) Training which helps keep people living with mental illness and substance abuse stay out of jail.  Trained CIT Officers use de-escalation techniques that improve the safety of the officer, consumer, and family members.  CIT Officers provide care and help to consumers by transporting individuals in need of treatment to appropriate facilities and resources.  Our community’s police agencies have CIT trained officers and asking for a CIT trained police officer improves response in a mental health crisis.
