About NAMI Southern Nevada and CIT (Crisis Intervention Team Training)
CIT programs are local initiatives designed to improve the way law enforcement and the community respond to people experiencing mental health crises. They are built on strong partnerships between law enforcement, mental health provider agencies and individuals and families affected by mental illness.
Our Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Depart and many local mental health care providers actively participate in Crisis Intervention Team Training (CIT), an innovative police-based, first responder program of pre-arrest jail diversion for those in a mental illness crisis. CIT supports collaborative efforts to create and sustain more effective interactions among law enforcement, mental health care providers, individuals with mental illness, their families and communities, and to reduce the stigma of mental illness.
NAMI has a special relationship with the Crisis Intervention Team Training program at local, state, and even the national level. NAMI keeps its members informed about CIT through its program “CIT In Action.”
