Mental Health in Eugene

The Eugene Police Department supports crisis intervention training (CIT). The CIT program provides police officers with 40 hours of training to safely resolve encounters with Eugene residents who have mental health concerns. CIT officers are first responders to calls involving individuals with mental health concerns. Where appropriate, CIT-certified officers may direct residents with psychological concerns to treatment facilities rather than to jail. 

Crisis intervention training covers many mental health subjects. Some of these topics include drug and alcohol addiction, age-related concerns, autism, suicidal behaviors, posttraumatic stress, and local mental health resources.
