The Council of State Governments (CSG) Justice Center is hosting a virtual Community of Practice focused on supporting counties in reducing recidivism among people on community supervision who have behavioral health needs. The Community of Practice will be led by CSG Justice Center policy and research staff, with featured presentations from research experts and peer counties. Participants will have opportunities for mutual learning and dialogue.

Upon completion of the Community of Practice, participants will be equipped with strategies they can use in their own communities to

1.     Enhance how people are matched to services based on their risk and needs and create quality assurance mechanisms to review fidelity and effectiveness;
2.     Develop processes, policies, and practices that create or enhance supervision strategies that prioritize tailored intervention and crisis aversion, such as collaborative case management, specialized caseloads, and violence risk assessment; 
3.     Strengthen efforts to connect people to housing; and
4.     Create tools that increase response options for technical violations, including substance use.    

These sessions are supported with funds from the Justice and Mental Health Collaboration Program via the U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA).
