Welcome!

We invite you to join us for our 9th annual Missouri Crisis Intervention Team (MO CIT) Conference. In partnership with Missouri Behavioral Health Council, Missouri CIT Council, and the Missouri Department of Mental Health we are excited to be able to provide this training opportunity in person. 

The Missouri Crisis Intervention Team (MO CIT) Council is a collaboration between law enforcement and other first responders, behavioral health providers, and community members to improve the outcomes for those with behavioral health disorders who could become or are justice-involved by diverting people in need of services who do not meet the criteria for an arrest on a criminal charge.

CIT is also a 40-hour training for law enforcement officers in the areas of mental illness, crisis response, active listening, tactical communication/de-escalation, mental health law, etc.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Clarke A. Paris

"Again, I have to tell you that your conference was incredible! You and your team pulled the conference off as if you had done it hundred times previously. Thank you for allowing Tracie and I to be a part of it! We had a blast and met some amazing people.

As I mentioned at dinner, I received an anonymous call the evening of the conference. An unidentified subject who wanted to remain anonymous, called me and said that our presentation saved his life and that he was now going to contact a counselor. 

We receive calls like this pretty regularly, but they NEVER become routine nor do they lose the impact they have on Tracie and I." 

Paton Blough

“The training leadership the CIT Council provides through their annual conference for law enforcement agencies across Missouri and beyond is amazing and inspiring.  I continue to feel extremely blessed and uplifted from the conference.” 

Sgt. Kevin Briggs, Ret.

" attended and was honored to speak at the 2018 Missouri CIT Conference.  I have to say, the structure of the conference, professionalism of the staff, and courses offered were quite incredible.  I wish I knew about this conference while I was active with the California Highway Patrol.  I was able to see old friends, make new ones and discover new methods to become better at my craft (which is now teaching suicide prevention, active listening skills and negotiations).  Even an old dog can still learn!  To the Missouri CIT Council, thank you for having me and keep up the great work!  We need more conferences like this."
