Collaborating to Provide Coordinated Crisis Intervention to
Residents Experiencing Mental Health Crisis
Rockbridge & Bath Regional
Crisis Intervention Team (CIT)
The Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) is a program that works with the community, law enforcement, and the local hospitals to help educate and provide a fast and more therapeutic approach to those in crisis. The Rockbridge and Bath Regional CIT Program holds Basic and Advanced classes aimed towards the various law enforcement agencies within this catchment, but also is open to all agencies across the State of Virginia. This is because CIT has been modeled off the Essential Elements for the Commonwealth of Virginia’s Crisis Intervention Team Programs (CIT), which is governed by the Code of Virginia.
