CIT 2023 Northwest Regional Conference


This two-day conference welcomes 1st Responders, behavioral health, resources, and consumers from all over Oregon, Idaho, and Washington states. The days are spent learning skills, sharing ideas, attending presentations, and networking with an emphasis on crisis intervention.

Working together as a Crisis Intervention Team is critical when responding to people in behavioral health crisis or with a substance abuse disorder. The system works better when there's an understanding of what each entity does to help an individual. 

This conference includes keynote presentation, tracks of training, an awards banquet, and much more.

Hope to see you there!
