Criminal Justice and Serious Mental Illness: Moving to Patient Centered Care
A 2010 report from the Treatment Advocacy Center found that jails and prisons have more than three times the individuals living with serious mental illness than hospitals. Labeled as the “new mental hospitals or asylums,” at least 16 percent of inmates currently in jails and prisons have a serious mental illness compared to 6.4 percent in 1983. Unless gaps in care for these individuals are identified and effective patient-centered interventions are implemented, this problem will persist and potentially worsen.

Peer-operated services can help individuals living with extensive physical health, behavioral health and social needs manage or avert crisis, prevent relapse and readmission, and provide an alternative to homelessness and re-incarceration. Join the National Council to explore two peer-operated service models. Hands Across Long Island has effectively engaged homeless individuals and successfully promoted re-entry from prison. The New York Association of Psychiatric Rehabilitation Services (NYAPRS) created the peer bridger model which has successfully engaged and assisted thousands of New Yorkers in their transition from state and local hospitals into the community and reduced avoidable emergency room and inpatient service use.
Medicaid and SBIRT – Funding a Crucial Substance Use Prevention Model
Multiple addiction crises have challenged the way states, health systems and providers treat individuals with substance use disorders. As addiction crises persist, it’s crucial for health care professionals to have the best strategies to screen and assess patients for risky substance use behavior early and consistently. As a Medicaid director or staff member, you are central to the promotion of these effective models. Stay informed on evidence-based practices by learning about Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) and its utility in preventing substance use disorders. Join Joe Parks, M.D., medical director at the National Council for Behavioral Health, to understand the value of this model and how state Medicaid departments can play a vital role in its implementation through reimbursement policy improvements that support its use. Learn from experience – listen to examples of SBIRT program outcomes in states like Missouri that have applied innovative payment models through their Medicaid programs.
