What is crisis intervention training?

Law enforcement officers are often first line responders during a mental health crisis. Crisis intervention team programs create linkages between law enforcement, mental health clinicians, and people with mental illnesses to help improve outcomes from encounters between law enforcement officers and people with serious mental illnesses. You can help support these programs in your community by building coalitions with community leaders, reaching out to local law enforcement agencies, and advocating for these programs to be developed and sustained.
