Behavioral Health Justice Reinvestment in Oregon: Second Presentation

The second presentation to Oregon’s Behavioral Health Justice Reinvestment Steering Committee prompted discussion that enabled the committee to reach agreement on a project framework that will become the basis for subsequent resource and policy discussions. The framework focuses on improving individual and system outcomes for people cycling through Oregon’s criminal justice and health systems by (1) establishing comprehensive community programming to improve outcomes for this population; (2) building a statewide system of strong and responsive local programs; and (3) establishing a system of shared financing to sustainably support these programs.
