National Findings on the Mental Illnesses and Substance Use of People Incarcerated in Prisons and Jails

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

In June 2017 the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) released two reports: Indicators of Mental Health Problems Reported by Prisoners and Jail Inmates, 2011-12 and Drug Use, Dependence and Abuse Among State Prisoners and Jail Inmates, 2007-2009.  In this webinar, BJS statistician Jennifer Bronson reviews the findings of the reports and discusses how jurisdictions around the country—namely Justice and Mental Health Collaboration Program grantees—can use this information.
