NAMI Wisconsin Receives Grant to Become Statewide CIT/CIP Program Director

Madison, WI- NAMI Wisconsin is excited to announce that we have been awarded the statewide Crisis Intervention Training (CIT)/Crisis Intervention Partner (CIP) expansion grant! This is very exciting for NAMI Wisconsin and funding starts as of November 1, 2014. This grant award means that NAMI Wisconsin will take the lead on expanding the 40-hour Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) training for law enforcement and the 16-hour Crisis Intervention Partners (CIP) training for correctional officers within the WI Department of Corrections as well as various organizations throughout the state of Wisconsin. 

This is a truly invigorating initiative as NAMI Wisconsin will work in partnership with our existing training teams to expand trainings by establishing statewide and local steering committees, disseminating information and resources, and hosting train-the-trainer events. If your community is interested in starting a CIT/CIP community initiative please start by contacting your local NAMI affiliate for more information (www.namiwisconsin.org).
