Frequently Asked Questions

What lessons can be learned from other states and counties where collaboration between the corrections and mental health systems has improved?

As part of its technical assistance work in this area, the CSG Justice Center has developed detailed case studies of corrections/mental health collaboration in several jurisdictions. One case study describes what leaders of the Departments of Corrections and the Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services in Kansas have done together to improve the likelihood of safe and successful transitions from prison to the community for individuals with mental illness. The Orange County, Florida case study describes the experiences of county jail staff and community providers collaborating to design post-booking diversion options.
