    2018 Annual Conference: Criminal Justice and Behavioral Health Part II: Identifying and Treating the People with the Highest Needs in Your Justice System

    Individuals who regularly cycle in and out of jails, emergency departments and other crisis services – who are sometimes called high utilizers or frequent utilizers – often use many county resources but still experience poor outcomes. Many of these individuals have untreated mental illnesses that contribute to homelessness, illicit substance use and involvement in illegal activities. In this workshop, hear from your peers about identifying the most frequent users of your justice, health and human services systems and targeting resources to connect them to appropriate treatment and services to improve outcomes and effectively use resources.
