Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) Training

 

 

Mental Health America provides training programs for first responders focused on safe and effective interaction with persons who are mentally ill and in crisis. We utilize the “Memphis Model” also known as CIT (Crisis Intervention Team) and a model created by the City of Cincinnati known as MHRT (Mental Health Response Team). The Hamilton County CIT team has experienced great success and is recognized as a leader in emergency response to mental illness in the State of Ohio. The team is focused on continuous improvement and serving citizens through caring, efficient, and effective response.

CIT is not just for police officers but also beneficial for all types of first responders. We know that CIT increases safety for the first responder, the individual they are responding to, and the surrounding community. Hamilton County CIT is funded in part by the Hamilton County Mental Health & Recovery Services BoardThe City of Cincinnati, and private donations.
