AJA Summit on Persons Suffering From Mental Illness in the Jail Environment
Lead Facilitator/Instructor: Dr. Mark Foxall
Jails have become the largest de facto mental health facility in many jurisdictions and are tracking more comorbidity inmates than ever before. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, approximately 2 million people with mental illnesses are booked into jail custody each year. At the conclusion of this summit, participants can recognize the dynamic issues related to the mental health crisis, gain knowledge from experts in the field, and determine which strategies would be most applicable to their current work in corrections.
