Crisis Intervention Team

Our agency is active in Callaway County’s Crisis Intervention Team. This Team consists of law enforcement, community members who experience mental illness, mental health professionals, and supportive agencies like CARDV with the mission of enhancing safety and support of community members with mental health needs.  CIT meets monthly to ensure that professionals in the community are trauma-informed and prioritizing best practices when engaging community members and responding to crises. CIT is a nationally recognized, research-based, growing practice for communities and we are very fortunate to have a Team here in Callaway!
