Crisis Intervention Team (CIT)

The Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) is composed of representatives from Crisis Intervention Team logohealth care, addiction centres, social workers, paramedics, RCMP and municipal police forces, and other first responder agencies who ensure that all mentally ill persons in crisis receive continuity of care from all services involved. The CIT training program reduces the potential for situations involving a mentally ill person to escalate and bridges the gaps between services to help the individual receive the best long term care possible.  Click here for more information on the Crisis Intervention Team.
