Mental Health, Mental Illness, And Criminal Justice

As the lesson materials show, the state of mental health treatment and servicing is in a dire state, particularly when you look at rural areas.

In this final activity, you will create a 2-page brief depicting the state of mental health in your local community, capacity to respond, and a list of recommendations to improve local capacity. To complete the list of recommendations, you will need to complete an inventory of the mental health services provided within your local community. In creating this inventory, supply the name, methods of contact, hours of operation, and indicate the range of mental and behavioral health services offered.

The specific steps are as follows:

  • Conduct independent research on mental health services provided within your local community.
  • Create an inventory of the mental health services provided within your local community. In creating this inventory, include the following information:
    • Name of the provider
    • Methods of contact
    • Hours of operation
    • Specific mental and behavioral health services offered
  • Create a 2-page brief depicting the state of mental health in your local community, capacity to respond, and a list of recommendations to improve local capacity.
  • Use no fewer than 4 resources.
