The NRI Criminal Justice/Mental Health Research Center

NRI is pleased to announce the Mental Health Criminal Justice Research Center as part of ongoing Criminal Justice initiatives. The NRI Mental Health – Criminal Justice Research Center provides analytics of mental health and criminal justice data to provide unbiased insights to enhance lives through improved policies and operational efficiencies of state public health agencies.

As a part of SAMHSA’s Olmstead Initiative, NRI will be facilitating four monthly Learning Communities from March through June 2018 focused on the mental health-criminal justice interface. The monthly meetings will be convened virtually via an interactive WebEx platform. Following each presentation, participants will have an opportunity to engage with each other by sending questions and comments. Participation is open to anyone interested in promoting the best possible integrated care for justice-involved individuals with mental illnesses. Updates on monthly topics will be posted here as they become available. Please sign up for our newsletter to receive information about these meetings delivered to your inbox.
