Mental Health Alert Wristbands
While society's acceptance of mental illness has improved over the years, it is still the most stigmatized of all medical diagnoses. To help protect those with a mental illness, the Mental Health Alert Wristbands were created so that the wearer's diagnoses are concealed yet is easily identifiable to those who can help in the most critical of moments.
Wristbands With A Purpose
This wristband stands as a symbol that is bringing Law Enforcement together with those who have a mental illness.
In a circle of unity, the navy blue represents Law Enforcement, and the silver represents those who have a mental illness. On the outside of the wristband are the Med Alert symbol, CIT (Crisis Intervention Team) acronym, and the CIT ribbon.
These serve as an outward sign to all Law Enforcement that the wearer has a mental illness. They are also a reminder to the wearer to ask for a CIT Officer when in crisis. Printed on the inside are the words Mental Health Alert. This helps keep the wearer’s diagnosis confidential.
In turn, Law Enforcement can wear these as CIT awareness wristbands. This will be an indication to a person with a mental illness that this Officer is CIT trained and can feel safe approaching or being approached by this Officer.
These are to be worn by those with mental health or dual diagnosis or a CIT Law Enforcement Officer.
