Best Practices and Mental Health Training for Jails

The Best Practices and Mental Health Training for Jails Committee seeks to ensure that the treatment of mental illness in the correctional population is maximized and adheres to the highest standards of care supported by current scientific research.  The Committee aims to educate those that operate within these systems (judges, jail administrators, clinicians, physicians, forensic examiners, correctional staff, etc.) on best practices concerning the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness in correctional populations.  The Committee also strives to promote an environment of curiosity and engagement by creating tools for training stakeholders at every knowledge and experience level with minimal required resources.
