The Behavioral Health Needs Framework and Collaborative Comprehensive Case Plans

Past Event
September 4, 2019, 8:00 am

Hosted by the National Reentry Resource Center with funding support from the U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance.

Jurisdictions across the country face challenges to developing case plans that balance criminogenic and behavioral health needs. In response, The Council of State Governments Justice Center developed the web-based Collaborative Comprehensive Case Plans tool, which builds upon Adults with Behavioral Health Needs under Correctional Supervision, a systems-planning framework for prioritizing supervision and treatment services. This webinar highlights two jurisdictions—the State of Oklahoma and Douglas County, Nebraska—and explains how they used Collaborative Comprehensive Case Plans to enhance their case planning processes and promote recovery, successful diversion from the criminal justice system to treatment, or reentry to the community among their participants.

Presenters:

  • Donna Bond, Coordinator of Mental Health Reentry, Oklahoma Department of Corrections
  • David A. D’Amora, Senior Policy Advisor, The Council of State Governments Justice Center
  • Whitney Johnson, Case Manager, Douglas County Community Mental Health Center
  • Mark Stovell, Senior Policy Analyst, The Council of State Governments Justice Center
