Veterans who are incarcerated have unique needs for services, which often include behavioral health treatment. In response, some correctional facilities have developed programming tailored for veterans in their facilities and have curated partnerships with justice programs in the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs' Veterans Health Administration to better serve them.
The Justice Programs Office at American University will conduct an interactive webinar session entitled, “Veterans Treatment Courts: 2015 Survey Results,” on Tuesday, December 13th, 2016 from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. EST. JPO Research Associate Kerwin Henderson will present.
The National Institute of Corrections (NIC) will be conducting a live-streaming internet broadcast on justice-involved veterans, highlighting the lifesaving role being played by veterans treatment courts across the country. The three-hour broadcast titled “Veterans Treatment Courts: A Second Chance for Vets Who Have Lost Their Way,” will be aired live on Wednesday, August 26, 2015.
