What Challenges You
Justice organizations serve extraordinary numbers of individuals with co-occurring behavioral health, medical, and reentry needs. While your organization has demonstrated expertise in public safety, it may need a public health partner to provide the up-to-date training, support, and access to the necessary core competencies needed to meet the needs of this clinically complex population.

Better Outcomes for Justice-Involved Individuals
To meet the significant medical, behavioral, and substance addiction needs of over 8,000 incarcerated individuals in 14 facilities, we helped redesign healthcare programs for one state’s department of corrections. With over 95% of incarcerated individuals returning to the community, a healthy reentry is vital to increasing reintegration success and improving community tenure.
In addition, a behavioral health initiative we developed for a state Medicaid agency in conjunction with state and county correctional facilities, as well as community, public, and mental health providers, has worked to reduce fatal overdoses and improve outcomes for 2,457 justice-involved individuals across the state since launching in 2019.
