Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) programs help first responders in communities across the country meet the challenges they face every day. How they respond to a crisis is critical in creating positive outcomes and averting tragedy.

CIT training is a community-driven program to equip first responders with the skills they need, and to improve relations between the community, mental health organizations and individuals living with mental illness.


CIT Training Saves Lives

By supporting NAMI, you can help sustain the resources and tools we provide to encourage more CIT programs nationwide. Twenty-five years ago the first program was started in Memphis and from the beginning NAMI grassroots leaders have helped bring this groundbreaking program to over 2,000 communities.

Your donation can help communities across the country get the resources they need to develop strong partnerships that will save lives.
