Behavioral Health Services for Criminal Justice-Involved Populations (Webinar Series Overview)

Criminal justice-involved populations are particularly susceptible to substance use and its consequences. Furthermore, these populations often have unique needs due to their justice system contact, such as additional stressors, barriers to services, and loss of substance tolerance, among many others. These populations often benefit from additional services from across the behavioral health continuum of care, and service providers should consider expanding services to better serve them.

This three-part webinar series will explore how behavioral health professionals can best serve and reach these populations. It will provide an overview of criminal justice-involved populations and their differing needs. It will also discuss strategies for initiating and expanding collaborations with justice system organizations. Additionally, it will discuss specific substance use prevention, substance use treatment, overdose prevention, and suicide prevention strategies for these populations. Lastly, the series will discuss the service needs of children of incarcerated parents and potential strategies for meeting them.  

Part 2: Evidence-Based Strategies and Recommendations for Providing Services (Session Overview)

This webinar will explore the evidence base around effective behavioral health interventions for criminal justice-involved populations. It will discuss substance use, overdose, and suicide prevention and treatment services for both the juvenile and adult justice systems. The webinar will also provide strategies for improving collaborative efforts between behavioral health continuum of care and criminal justice system organizations. Lastly, the webinar will introduce resources that behavioral health professionals can use to learn more.
