Free

Within jails, inmates with mental illnesses tend to fare poorly, and they spend longer incarcerated than do similarly-charged individuals without mental illness. This challenge has sparked many reform efforts, but often these efforts fail to focus on the broader systemic problems that have led to this reality. This webinar will bring that systemic focus to the problem through the lens of the Americans with Disabilities Act’s integration mandate and lessons learned from systematic mental health systems reform. The webinar will discuss how mental health, criminal justice, and correctional programs can work together to meet ADA obligations and ensure an array of services that reduce the likelihood that people with mental illnesses will enter the criminal justice system
