Mental Health Services Awareness Night

Thursday, October 10

People frequently turn to ecclesiastical leaders, physicians, school personnel, other professionals, and community leaders to help locate mental health and counseling services. The purpose of this event is to help community leaders know where to refer people for mental health and counseling services. This event is intended for “gatekeepers” or leaders and other highly invested community members, but not for actual mental health clients. Past attendees have overwhelmingly expressed satisfaction with the material and resources that were presented.

Crisis Intervention Training

Crisis Intervention Training (CIT) trains officers to effectively assist individuals in their communities who are in crisis due to behavioral health or developmental disorders. CIT relies on a strong community partnership and a vibrant crisis system to appropriately redirect individuals in crisis away from the criminal justice system and into the behavioral health system. The goals of the program are to reduce stigma, increase both officer and consumer safety, and access supports and services to decrease continuing involvement with the criminal justice system.
