The ultimate goal is to provide the knowledge and skills needed to de-escalate youth and adolescents in crisis, emphasize treatment rather than jail for youth displaying signs of mental illness, and improve outcomes for officers and others following encounters with youth with mental health issues. CIT-Youth is a great example how the Center for Safer Schools takes research and puts it into practical use in our schools to create better long-term outcomes for both vulnerable youth and society at large.
