The Forensic Intervention Team (FIT) is an innovative program that partners OMH clinicians with our County's eleven law enforcement agencies to assist individuals with mental health needs and who have frequent contact with law enforcement. The goal of the program is to increase the individual's connectedness to outpatient services and decrease the utilization of emergency and crisis response services. The FIT team is transitional in nature, with FIT clinicians providing assessments, referrals and linkage to services. As this team is a partnership, referrals come directly from law enforcement.
