Nationally known for his work on developing Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) models, Major Sam Cochran, (retired) will be a keynote speaker at the 2022 CIT Conference to be held at the McKimmon Center in Raleigh on February 24th.
Many law enforcement agencies, mental health professionals and advocates have joined in partnerships to establish Crisis Intervention Teams (CIT). Effective CIT program implementation in NC is critical for improving the interactions and outcomes for those that experience mental health crisis in our communities.
The theme for the 2022 CIT Conference is “Faithful to Our History, Preparing for Our Future.” We will look to our roots to see why CIT has become the gold standard for crisis response, while examining new and exciting models that will enhance our programs. Major Cochran will be speaking on “CIT and The Community: Partnerships, Responsibility, Accountability and ‘MORE’.”
