Aegis Training Solutions is a nationally recognized crisis intervention training provider focused on Mental and Behavioral Healthcare. Aegis has been widely adopted in hospitals, residential treatment centers, and other human service organizations across the country.
With headquarters in Southeast Michigan, Aegis is powered by a team with decades of experience preventing crisis in a variety of clinical settings.
The Aegis System™ was developed as a direct response to un-met demand for a more sophisticated and in-depth approach to Crisis De-escalation. Unlike other training providers, we don’t have to water down our curriculum to make it scalable.
Aegis utilizes an evidence-based approach that prevents crisis situations from escalating.
Our mission is to create a new standard in safety and best practice that not only positively impacts all outcomes related to incident(s) of crisis but day-to-day interactions in a human service environment.
The Aegis System™ was written with a focus on solutions at point-of-care. Many of these practices transcend moments of acute crisis and positively impact day-to-day interactions.

Aegis is the first training program that eliminates the need for dangerous prone and supine floor restraints.
Although prone restraint is prohibited or restricted in most states, other training providers still use it as part of their curriculum.
Supported by recent policy scan, and due to empirical findings, Aegis believes prone restraints are dangerous and should not be taught.
The Aegis Safety Position™ is a seated, manually applied benevolent restraint that is highly adaptable to escorting and standing positions. This position safeguards against any type of airway restriction and complications from head, arm, and leg thrashing. the Aegis Safety Position™ is a direct response to recent trends in best practice that are moving away from 1 to 1 physical interventions.
Our passion is to empower front line professionals and to improve outcomes revolving around crisis. Aegis meets demand by providing regular public and private in-person trainings in various locations across the country and also provides industry leading online training solutions.
Aegis Training aligns with all federal, state, and private guidelines. Organizations big and small rely on Aegis training and consulting to maintain their safety climate.
