*If law enforcement is ever involved in a crisis, you may request a Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) officer if available. CIT (Crisis Intervention Team) program exists in Wood County and is a local initiative designed to improve the way law enforcement respond to people experiencing mental health crises. They are built on strong partnerships between law enforcement, mental health provider agencies and individuals and families affected by mental illness.

To a depressed person, painful feelings often seem as if they’ll last forever. But a little time, and professional intervention, can make a dramatic difference. Hopelessness can lift and life can be good again. You can say this to the hurting person with confidence, because it’s true. It has happened for countless others who are now glad they’re alive.
