JUSTICE-INVOLVED BEHAVIORAL HEALTH MDT

The Justice-Involved Behavioral Health MDT was developed out of Sequential Intercept Model (SIM) Mapping Workshops. Key stakeholders from local behavioral health and criminal justice systems met to identify resources for responding to the needs of adults with mental and substance use disorders who are involved or at risk for involvement in the criminal justice system, as well as gaps in services and opportunities for cross-system collaboration and partnership.

PARTNERSHIPS AND STRATEGIES TO REENTRY MDT

Partnerships and Strategies to Reentry meets quarterly to learn best practices, share new programming, and learn of gaps in service in the area of reentry. This group met first as Partnerships and Strategies to Reduce Violent Crime; it was opened to cover a broader population. Partners meet operationally between meetings to share information confidential to client case plans and not appropriate for larger groups.
