Our Mission

The Northeast Delta Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) is dedicated to safety through the specialized training and the utilization of crisis intervention techniques. In a law enforcement environment, this training helps to identify and provide the most effective and appropriate response to assist persons with a mental illness.

The Northeast Delta CIT Program promotes officer safety and understanding when dealing with persons in a crisis. We emphasize safety to all concerned - consumers, the communities, and law enforcement.

The Region VIII Mental Health Community Response Task Force is the parent non-profit corporation of the Northeast Delta CIT. We are grounded on the principles of dignity, kindness, and hope for persons with a mental illness. Our endeavors are only possible through the collaborative efforts between persons with a mental illness, family members, advocates, government and elected leaders, community professionals, mental health providers, and law enforcement professionals.

We cannot succeed alone. The Northeast Delta CIT goes beyond a crisis intervention team. We are truly a "Community Intervention Team".
