Crisis Intervention Team (CIT)
WHAT IS A CRISIS?A psychological crisis is a life event that an individual perceives as stressful to the extent that normal coping mechanisms are insufficient. The CIT members have always been at the forefront of providing personal counseling, guidance, and referring students to the most appropriate resources available both on campus and off campus.
CRISIS INTERVENTION TEAM (CIT)The Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) is composed of professional counselors from Saddleback College Counseling Center and the Student Health Center. The CIT counselors are available to assist when a Saddleback student or staff member experiences a psychological emergency and is in need of immediate help. This service is primarily intended for students and staff only. However, the CIT members may be called in for a non-student community member visiting on campus who may be experiencing a psychological crisis. Any question you have regarding the CIT may be referred to the CIT Coordinator, Dean of Counseling Services Division; or the Vice President for Student Services.
