Improving Crisis Response Systems
What is CIT Utah
CIT Utah is a program of the State of Utah. The CIT Utah program develops and sustains partnerships between criminal justice services, behavioral healthcare services, and community members. These partnerships provide three basic services: the training of law enforcement officers and other first responders in proper methods of crisis response and resolution; developing effective crisis response systems; and advocating for accessible behavioral health services and programing.
CIT Utah is primarily funded through the Utah Division of Substance Abuse and Mental Health, as well as private donations. The program is administered by a contract awarded to CIT Utah, Inc., a nonprofit corporation established specifically for this purpose.
