Vera Institute Report: Closing the Gap: Using Criminal Justice and Public Health Data to Improve the Identification of Mental Illness

From the Factsheet: “Closing the Gap describes findings from the Vera Institute of Justice’s District of Columbia Forensic Health Project—a study of the mental health needs of people arrested in the District of Columbia in June 2008. The project aims to provide criminal justice and health agencies with information to improve the delivery of mental health services to this population, support the design of new policies and programs, and establish a baseline against which to measure the effectiveness of new initiatives.”
