Michael Compton, M.D., M.P.H., professor and director of research initiatives in psychiatry and behavioral sciences and professor of prevention and community health at the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences, has been elected to the Board of Directors of Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) International.  

CIT International is a non-profit membership organization that works to promote and support collaborative efforts to create and sustain more effective interactions among law enforcement, mental health care providers, individuals with mental illness, their families and communities and also to reduce the stigma of mental illness across the country. CIT programs have been implemented by approximately 3,000 police departments across the U.S. and have trained tens of thousands of officers.

“It was an honor to be elected to the leadership of this national, and now international, police-based movement,” said Compton.
