Preventing the Next Virginia Tech -- The National Behavioral Intervention Team Association Launched Today
Date:1/15/2009

MALVERN, Pa., Jan. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Today marked the launch of the National Behavioral Intervention Team Association (http://www.nabita.org).

NaBITA is an independent entity created by a team of mental health experts, prevention specialists, educators and attorneys who are well-known and respected in their professional circles. One of the creators, Brett A. Sokolow, Esq. of NCHERM (http://www.ncherm.org), was asked why he helped to found NaBITA. He replied, "Two years ago, our firm was a small law and consulting firm. The events of Virginia Tech catapulted our CUBIT behavioral interventi
