Courts play an integral role in ensuring that individuals with a mental illness and/or substance use disorder who are justice involved receive the most appropriate care that leads to recovery.  The presenters from Georgia have found that Incorporating Peer Supporters (individuals who have lived experience of both behavioral health and justice involvement) into the court system has been an important step in helping the court understand and support recovery and increase diversion.  This webinar will feature State Court Judge Charles Auslander, III from the State Court of Athens-Clarke County, Georgia; Laura McCoy, FPM, DUI Treatment Court Case Manager with the Western Judicial Circuit in Georgia; and Tony Sanchez, Director of Partnerships at Faces and Voices of Recovery.  The presenters will discuss the value of including Peers in the judicial system to promote recovery and help break the cycle of arrests; how judges can advocate for incorporating Peers into the judicial process; how providers and behavioral health treatment teams, including Peers, Social Workers, Nurses, and others, can best approach the judicial system to form partnerships of care; all while underlying that each system (the Judicial and Behavioral Health Systems) share the same values and goals even though they may speak different languages.
