    Miami Center for Mental Health and Recovery: Treatment v. Incarceration

    The Miami Center for Mental Health and Recovery, acclaimed as a national model, represents a tangible solution to the challenge of decreasing the number of individuals with mental illness in county jails. This “hard hat” tour of the center’s construction site, hosted by Judge Steve Leifman, will shed light on how the county utilized a surplus building and acquired funding for this center to advance its objective of diverting individuals with mental illness away from its jails and into a more suitable and productive treatment environment.

    This workshop is at capacity. If you would like to be placed on a waitlist, please email ahurley@naco.org.
