Connections to Behavioral Health and Support Services through Reentry

Past Event
April 26, 2022, 3:00 pm – 4:15 pm, Eastern

Hosted by The Council of State Governments (CSG) Justice Center, the National Reentry Resource Center, and the Bureau of Justice Assistance

During the reentry process, people work across various sectors to offer support to people who are being released from incarceration by providing connections to care for behavioral health, housing, transportation, and other supportive services. While there are challenges providing connections to care, there are also some success stories that Second Chance Act grantees can offer insight on. This webinar will feature three grantees who have utilized innovative ways to provide post-release connections to care for people who are returning to various communities.

Speakers:

  • Cindy Schwartz, Project Director, Eleventh Judicial Circuit (FL) Criminal Mental Health Project
  • Victoria Daggan, Camden County Jail Reentry Coordinator, Camden County (NJ) Department of Correction
  • Lorraine Washington, Manager of Grants, Shelby County (TN) Division of Corrections
  • Natasha Means, SYNC Program Coordinator, Shelby County (TN) Division of Corrections
  • Alison Farringer, Senior Policy Analyst, Behavioral Health, CSG Justice Center
