Pima County proposes to expand AI/ET by employing two strategies: 1) add two part-‐ time Forensic Peer Specialists (1 FTE) to the CPSA Criminal Justice Team to be stationed at PCADC to cover the remaining initial court appearances, to aid in gathering collateral information of CPSA-‐enrolled arrestees, and to expedite re-‐engagement of these individuals with community treatment services; and 2) Provide transportation for persons diverted after initial court appearances as required. Pat Benchik Urban 2010 JMHCP Grantee: GOAL 1: Elevate the knowledge, skills, and abilities of probation officers, detention officers, correctional health staff, court and judicial staff, and comprehensive community-‐based behavioral health services and case management staff, in the effective supervision and treatment of female offenders with serious mental illness and/or co-‐occurring disorders. GOAL 2: Develop and People of Color Maricopa County implement a program of treatment and support services that targets justice-‐involved Norma Brasda Network Adult Probation women with serious mental illness and/or co-‐occurring disorders that is gender specific, trauma informed, and criminogenic responsive. GOAL 3: Enhance the quality, impact, and reach of interagency collaboration among and between those agencies engaged in the arrest, confinement, adjudication, supervision, treatment, and support of women with psychiatric impairments in general and women with SMI/co-‐occurring disorders in particular. Urban To address these needs, CCC proposes a pilot Juvenile Behavioral Health Court (JBHC). The JBHC will provide mental health, co-‐occurring disorder and criminogenic screening, including specific screening for trauma; intensive mental health case management and probation supervision; wraparound services; trauma treatment (with special emphasis on identifying and treating girls who have been sexually Contra Costa Numerous Youth exploited); mental health advocacy and treatment; and efficient use of existing County Probation Paula Hernandez Services Providers county services. The system will provide: 1) expanded access to early screening, Department diagnosis and treatment, comprehensive and evidence-‐based services and integrated treatment of mental illness and substance use disorders; 2) pre-‐trial diversion and linkage to comprehensive services; and 3) expanded supportive services to sustain recovery, such as family partner(s), education, supportive housing, vocational training, etc. CA CA San Francisco Los Angeles Housing and Employment for Recovery Outcomes (HERO) Veterans' Alternative Legal Options and Resources (VALOR) Adult Adult Planning & Implementation Planning & Implementation Urban Urban Citywide Case Management Forensics The Housing and Employment for Recovery Outcomes (HERO) program, for which the San Francisco Superior Court is requesting funding, seeks to address both challenges by maximizing existing resources, improving treatment and service coordination, and promoting community re-‐integration for adults with serious mental illness. Through this new and more efficient approach, the HERO program will provide integrated supportive housing and employment to groups of 13 BHC clients at a time over six month intervals. Supported employment services will commence in jail and continue on-‐site for the duration of the client’s stay in transitional housing. Locating permanent housing and facilitating long-‐term self-‐ sufficiency are primary goals of San Francisco the HERO program. The HERO program will focus specifically on Reentry, Intercept 4 Superior Court -‐ of the Sequential Intercept Model. Under the umbrella of BHC, each HERO Lisa Lightman Behavioral Health participant will develop an extensive in custody treatment plan including mental Court health treatment, housing, employment goals, and other community supports. The participant will receive employment services in custody through the Public Defender’s Employment Specialist and will transition to the Supported Employment team at Citywide (CWCMF) once out of custody. By merging two evidence-‐based practices, Supportive Housing and Supported Employment, the HERO program will also span: Intercept 3 (Jails and Court) as each participant will be monitored by BHC; Intercept 4 (Reentry from Jails) as previously stated; and Intercept 5 (Community Support Services) through dedicated Probation Officers assigned to monitor HERO probationers. By providing continuity of care in regards to housing and employment, the HERO program addresses a gap that will likely improve outcomes. With federal funding, the LACA proposes, in conjunction with New Directions, Inc. and USC’s Center for Innovation and Research on Military and their Families (“USC”), to launch Operation VALOR (Veterans’ Alternative Legal Options and Resources) to meet the needs of homeless veterans coming into contact with the criminal justice system for nonviolent offenses. Together with New Directions and USC, Operation VALOR will develop new protocols and procedures for justice involved veterans and identify data collection and information sharing tools to ensure the most effective use of resources. The partnership will also review and select appropriate screening New Directions, Los Angeles City and assessment tools. Thereafter, eligible Operation VALOR veterans will undergo Janette Flintoft Inc Attorney's Office screenings and receive individual referral plans to partner service agencies to divert them onto a path away from criminogenic risk factors and the criminal justice system. Each matter will be coordinated by an Operation VALOR Deputy City Attorney and case managed by New Directions. USC will provide data collection and the program performance evaluation.Operation VALOR will integrate the Sequential Intercept Model to catch homeless veterans through different points of contact with an emphasis on Intercept 1 (law enforcement) and Intercept 2 (initial detention/initial court hearings).
