Did you know that persons with mental health issues are much more likely to be arrested multiple times for the same crime and even serve lengthier sentences (SAMHSA 2019)?
The incarceration of this population poses further challenges upon release. Reentry efforts that address these barriers include social, economic, and public health concerns. Careful attention for this large segment of the population must be given, to promote best practices and wellness upon return to the community.
Looking locally, how can we best strengthen existing opportunities while identifying gaps for this population, as one may move through the criminal justice system at time of arrest, to reentry and release into the community? The annual Sequential Intercept Model mapping conference’s objective does just that. Please join us on Friday, February 3, 2023, where this year’s focus will be on juveniles and transitional youth, in the system. Stay tuned and save the date!
