CLAJ Fall Seminar on Psychiatric Disorders in Incarcerated Populations: Challenges for Correctional Facilities and the Public Health System

November 11, 2021

2:00pm to 3:30pm (Eastern)

Mental health and substance use disorders are common in youth and adults in correctional facilities in the United States. Services are insufficient, and after release, there are many barriers to linkage to services in the community.

Join the Committee on Law and Justice for a seminar that will explore and discuss psychiatric disorders in incarcerated populations and challenges for correctional facilities and the public health system.

The seminar will highlight: (1) services needs and service utilization during incarceration – in jails, prisons and juvenile detention centers; and (2) linkage to community services. The objective of the seminar is to address how we might improve the systems that provide care.

Date and Time: 
November 11, 2021 - 11:00am to 12:30pm
