Mental Health

Across the country, communities are struggling to address the high number of people with mental health needs cycling through the criminal justice system each year. In many communities, correctional facilities provide more treatment for people with mental illnesses than community-based mental health providers do. Our team works with states and local communities to improve responses for people with mental health needs in the criminal justice system.
