Role Players for Crisis Intervention Team Training

Wanted:  A few great role players for the 46th “Crisis Intervention Team” (CIT) training in Forsyth County during the afternoon of Thursday, March 21 from 1:00 pm  – 4:30 pm at the University Corporate Center, 1100 Reynolds Boulevard, Winston-Salem in Room B1110.

The Role Plays are a vital, critical component of CIT as they help implement and “piece together” what our trainees have learned during the week in terms of how to safely and humanely deescalate a person in a mental health crisis and get help for that individual . . . as opposed to jail.

If you have any questions, please contact
