The Council of State Governments (CSG) Justice Center, with support from the Bureau of Justice Assistance, is offering free virtual training and support to three local jurisdictions (e.g., county, city) during the winter/spring of 2021.
Tailored to your agency, the training will focus on several topics related to the intersection of people with mental illness and the criminal justice system, including the following:
- Understanding how people with mental illness flow through the criminal justice system.
- Implementing diversion and intervention strategies.
- Identifying local community partnerships and expanding their capacity for support.
CSG will also provide recommendations and further steps of action. Applications are due by Friday, January 15, 2021.
