Partnering with the Justice System to Improve Outcomes in Coordinated Specialty Care

This resource was selected by SMI Adviser content partners and approved by the SMI Adviser clinical expert team for inclusion in the knowledge base.

Young people experiencing a first episode of psychosis are highly likely to interact with the justice system, which often leads to longer duration of untreated psychosis and poorer outcomes compared to those without justice involvement. The recent expansion of Coordinated Specialty Care (CSC) programs in the United States offers an opportunity to reduce justice system involvement, coordinate services and support people in the early stages of psychosis who are already involved in the justice system, and facilitate early detection at various points in the justice system. This webinar provides an overview of the prevalence of justice system involvement among CSC program participants, describes ways in which CSC programs can better support these participants and describes strategies for outreach and partnering effectively with the criminal justice system.
