The CIT Oakland training is a 40-hour comprehensive training provided to law enforcement on mental health. The goal of the training is to teach officers to de-escalate situations where an individual is in crisis. This training is a collaborative effort between Oakland Community Health Network, OCC CREST, local law enforcement agencies, and behavioral health providers. At this time, this training is only open to Oakland County law enforcement agencies.

CIT-Y 8-Hour Training
The standard CIT training offered to most police officers focuses primarily on response techniques for adults. While there are some general similarities between adults and youth, there are important and unique distinctions that require specialized knowledge and training. CIT-Y trains police officers on response techniques that are appropriate for youth with behavioral health needs.
Registration is closed for CIT-Y Training in January - there are a few open seats, if you would like to attend, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
