You’re invited to join Kaiser Permanente’s Institute for Health Policy for a conversation focused on criminal justice, policy and the mental health system.
This no-fee virtual forum will take place online July 15th, 2:00 - 3:15 pm PT.
A large share of those with mental illnesses and substance use disorders get caught up in the criminal justice system often with tragic results. There are better ways, including the implementation of diversion programs that create partnerships between mental health, social service providers and the criminal justice system.
This virtual event will explore how the justice system and mental health and social supports can work together to identify more equitable paths to recovery and reentry into society. To inform this discussion, please view The Definition of Insanity – a documentary that explores an innovative model in Miami-Dade County, Florida for solving the mental health crisis in the criminal justice system.
