Mental Health in Boise

The Mental Health Coordinator (MHC) works with community partners and the Boise Police Department (BPD). Together, they work to bring mental health services to residents in crisis. The MHC helps educate police to identify and interact with people experiencing mental health concerns.  

The BPD has also received Crisis Intervention Teams (CIT) training. CIT serves two purposes. The first is to improve officer and public safety. The second is to direct residents with mental health concerns away from the judicial system and toward treatment. BPD officers receive CIT training in verbal de-escalation, interviewing special victims, responding to residents with autism, and scenarios involving the use of force. An estimated 133 BPD officers have completed CIT training.
