Welcome to the City of Albuquerque

Crisis Intervention

The Crisis Intervention Team's goal is to provide an effective response to situations involving people who might be mentally ill or in crisis.

The Crisis Intervention Team works with people in the Albuquerque Community who exhibit chronic behavior patterns that may pose risks to themselves or others.

One of the team's primary goals is to ensure that situations involving people in crisis are defused so that force may be avoided and proper medical attention or referral to an appropriate follow-up agency is provided.

The team also works closely with the mental health care provider network to help identify deficiencies in our health care programs.
