There are several different types of meetings that CM gets involved in to help the community that some of you might not be aware of.
Today I took part in another CIT training for Law Enforcement which is one of those type of meetings.
Starting in 2014 with the Box Elder county, Salt Lake county, and Davis county I have been invited to share my Iraq war experience and how it effected my mental health.
This helps Law Enforcement understand more about why we get triggered by certain things here at home and how to handle these cases when they arise.
It is an honor to be involved and work with our Law Enforcement that have a very difficult job. During my recovery I went down a terrible road and had a few instances with the law, if I had not been down that road I’m not sure it would be affective for me to take part in this training.
Unfortunately the best teachers happen to be from those that have been there, done that and recovered to help others not to make the same mistakes.
I would like to thank Travis from Davis county for inviting me to take part in the CIT training today.

Special thank you to all our Law Enforcement Officers 🇺🇸❤️
What is CIT? Crisis Intervention Teams (CIT) are teams of specially trained law enforcement officers. These officers are trained in tactics to effectively deal with a person experiencing a mental health crisis, as well as how to interact on an everyday basis with individuals who have mental illness. – NAMI Utah
