People with mental health, and substance use challenges are overrepresented in criminal justice system and law enforcement settings, and approximately 40% of incarcerated individuals have at least one chronic health condition, such as diabetes or hypertension. Partnerships between law enforcement agencies and integrated health care organizations help to reduce these health disparities and improve access to whole person care among individuals involved in the justice system.
This webinar will explore a recent research project that surveyed the role of Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics (CCBHCs) in law enforcement settings to address community-based mental health, physical health, and crisis needs against the backdrop of racial inequities. Research findings, including barriers, successes, and outcomes of partnerships will be shared during this webinar.
Join us for our webinar, Integrated Care & Law Enforcement: Lessons Learned from Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics (CCBHCs), on Tuesday, July 20, 2021, from 2:00-3:00pm ET to hear from experts in this space as they explore partnerships between CCBHCs and law enforcement agencies to advance health equity.
