It's no secret when patients in corrections have more mental health challenges and diagnoses than the patients in the community. Plus, staff burnout and shortages have made conditions for health care professionals even harder. While the problems are clear, the answers are not. Join with colleagues, peers, and experts to explore the many issues facing mental health care professionals in corrections. At one focused event, you'll have your choice of more than 30 sessions to delve into daily challenges and meaningful strategies.
