Community-based Mental Health Crisis Services

Published October 2019

The Psychiatric Services Editor’s Choice provides essential curated collections from recent issues of Psychiatric Services.  Each month, Editor Lisa Dixon and the Early Career Psychiatrist Advisory Committee offer a curated collection from the rich resource of articles published in the journal. Updates will focus on one area, summarizing for the researcher, clinician, and policy analyst the latest information and seminal research with links to specific content from Psychiatric Services.

An estimated two million individuals with serious mental illness cycle through U.S. jails every year. People with mental illness may experience a delay or interruption in receiving mental health care while in jail or prison and may be better served by community mental health programs. Justice diversion programs provide a critical strategy to limit this population’s involvement in the criminal justice system and shift the focus to improving mental health. This Editor’s Choice collection starts with an article outlining the sequential intercept model, which has served as a nationwide framework for justice diversion. Subsequent articles are organized by intercept points as described in the model. The collection concludes with an article that specifically addresses young adults with first-episode psychosis, because that population may be at high risk of criminal justice involvement.

Please note that not all articles in this curated collection are available without a subscription. For access, learn about subscribing to Psychiatric Services.
