Justice Involved Programming

Justice Involved Programs are those activities are those programs which work with those individuals who have serious mental illness and are involved in the criminal justice system. The goals of the Jail Liaison is to make sure that individuals who are incarcerated in partner facilities have access to needed mental health care while in jail and to facilitate communication and the coordination of activities between the jail and mental health systems. Embedded clinicians within law enforcement agencies can meet with victims of crime who are experiencing mental health needs as well as work with officers to better understand the needs of those we serve, and their own mental health. We also help plan for release through outcome monitoring, training and education.
