Correct Crisis Intervention Today (CCIT-NYC)

CCIT-NYC, Transforming Mental Health Crisis Response

Logo for the Correct Crisis Intervention Today – NYC coalition

CCIT-NYC is a coalition of more than 80 mental health advocacy and other community organizations, consisting of hundreds of community stakeholders, working to transform how New York City responds to mental health crises. CCIT-NYC has proposed a mental health crisis response system that replaces police with teams of trained peer specialists and independent emergency medical technicians, based on input from two 100-plusmember community focus groups and a review of relevant research.

This page contains links and resources to learn more about the coalition, its proposal, and how it matches up against other proposed alternatives to police intervention. For more information about CCIT-NYC, visit
