This presentation was delivered at the 2013 JMHCP National Training and Technical Assistance Event. Practitioners face a number of challenges to reducing the prevalence of mental illnesses in criminal justice settings. Fortunately, there is a growing body of research that identifies practices associated with both positive public health and public safety outcomes. This plenary presented an overview of evidence-based practices and described the application of these practices to justice-involved individuals with mental illnesses.
