The WSCJTC provides training for criminal justice personnel responding to people in a mental health crisis. Crisis Intervention Team Training (CIT), involves working in a team with mental health practitioners, law enforcement, medical personnel, and other first responders. The focus is to provide the best services possible to the individual in a mental health crisis.

 

In 2008, the WSCJTC created a curriculum manual with suggested course materials on CIT. The WSCJTC also has informational guides available by request from the Bureau of Justice Assistance, The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administrations.


INFORMATIONAL GUIDES

1. Crisis Intervention Training Suggested Course Materials Manual - WSCJTC 053108

In 2010, the WSCJTC partnered with King County Mental Health to provide CIT Training to first responders working or assigned to King County. CIT-King CO training includes 40-hour, 8-hr, and much more.
