4325.0 Assessing mental health-criminal justice interventions and costs

Tuesday, November 1, 2011: 2:30 PM
Assess mental health-criminal justice interventions and costs and their association with participant and program characteristics
Session Objectives: Articulate the demographic and clinical similarities and differences between jail diversion and prison reentry FACT consumers. Identify the program components and ways a CT prison reentry program was successful in facilitating the community adjustment of prisoners with a serious mental illness. Examine the hospital, criminal justice and service utilization outcomes of expedited Medicaid restoration for persons with severe mental illness who are released from jails, prisons, and state hospitals. Compare total average costs to state agencies incurred by people with SMI who have CJ involvement and those who do not, related to their contacts with the mental health and CJ systems.
