R4 Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) Basic Academy- Idaho Falls FREE TRAINING

April 6 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Course Number: R4236

Course Description:

The Crisis Intervention Team academy is a 40-hour training program for law enforcement officers and first responders that includes basic information about mental illnesses, the local mental health system, crisis de-escalation, local resources, and local laws. Officers learn first-hand from consumers and their families and are taught verbal de-escalation skills which they are able to practice by participating in educational role-playing.

 

Law enforcement officers and first responders are often called upon to intervene when individuals

with mental illnesses are in crisis. The CIT academy provides education around how to work more

effectively in these situations and forges partnerships within the local community with key community

stakeholders such as mental health professionals, housing, and other critical resources.
