    Bridging the Gap: Crisis Response as Criminal Justice Diversion

    Approximately 2 million times per year people with serious mental illness are booked into local jails. Roughly three-quarters of these individuals also meet criteria for a co-occurring substance use disorder. Counties are increasingly using crisis triage and stabilization centers to decrease the use of incarceration when appropriate and connect people to community-based care. Join us for a moderated discussion among county officials and individuals with lived experience on developing an effective crisis continuum with a focus on facilities that screen, assess and provide treatment and warm hand-offs to long-term care.
