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.
NAMI NC and its affiliates are proud to contribute to the training and support of CIT efforts and improving crises handling throughout the state.
On February 24, 2022, CIT advocates will gather at the McKimmon Center in Raleigh, North Carolina for a full day of learning, camaraderie, and sharing resources. 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.
