The relationship between behavioral health conditions and criminal justice involvement has been well documented in the literature. Two-thirds of our nation’s youth who are incarcerated have been diagnosed with at least one behavioral health condition (Moore, 2009). Adults with a mental illness are overrepresented in the correctional system at a rate of two to four times the general population (Al-Rousan et al. 2017). There are more than ten times as many adults with serious mental illnesses in jails and prisons than in hospitals (Torrey et al., 2010).
The 2019 Ninth Annual CIBHS Evidence-Based Practices Symposium
will focus on practices that support effective and innovative cross-system collaboration to improve responses and outcomes for children, youth, and adults with significant substance use and mental health conditions who encounter or those who are at risk of encountering the justice system.
We’ll be coming together as a culturally humble and diverse group of quality professionals to rock the new rules!
