New justice/mental health online discussion forum (USA)
The United States Council of State Governments’ Justice Center has launched a new online discussion forum on justice and mental health issues. The forum, funded in part by the US Department of Justice, is intended for mental health care providers, justice services staff, police officers and policy-makers. The forum is designed to facilitate exchange of ideas about the design and implementation of criminal justice/mental health initiatives. The forum offers the opportunity to ask questions of experts in the field, discuss programs and strategies with peers, and read about current issues and challenges facing other programs across the US. To access the forum, visit www.consensusproject.org.
