The vision of the National Behavioral Intervention Team Association (NaBITA) is to make our campuses safer environments where development, education, and caring intervention are fostered and encouraged.
NaBITA brings together professionals from multiple disciplines who are engaged in the essential function of behavioral intervention in schools, on college campuses, and in corporations and organizations for mutual support and shared learning.
Whether it is to combat bullying, prevent violence, support individuals with disabilities, empower the success of those suffering from mental health challenges, or assist those who are in crisis, our members are joined in common purpose and exploration of best practices.
The National Behavioral Intervention Team Association is committed to providing education, development, and support to school professionals who endeavor every day to make their campuses safer through caring prevention and intervention.
