325 Standards of Care: Mental Health Care in Our Jails and Prisons... Now What
Jails and prisons are the largest mental health facilities in the nation. No matter how hard we try to defer entry, those with mental illness find their way through our doors. Implementing mental health service standards in correctional facilities can remove barriers to assisting individuals with mental illness, while also helping achieve peak organizational performance. Firsthand experiences from the presenters and the audience will shape the conversation and develop potential avenues for advocacy.
