Crisis Intervention Partners (CIP) training is a 16 hour training modeled after the training component of Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) programs. CIP is designed for wide-ranging audiences interested in better understanding and improving interactions with people who experience behavioral crises. Participants include correctional officers, 911 dispatchers, emergency personnel, hospital staff,  work that involves community interactions and more.

The Core philosophy behind CIP is to improve safety, avoid unnecessary use of force, and improve identification, referral, and treatment planning for those experiencing a behavioral crisis.

NOTE:  The same information about procedures, contact information and resources for both Portage and Wood Counties will be provided at each of the training sites.  We will attempt to provide county-specific information for other counties, depending on the participants attending the session.

All of the training sessions are full at this time.
