• Community Advocates

• Concerned Citizens

This event will provide to those who are attending:

·         The ability to meet with experts who are currently providing services

·         Hear from families who have been affected

·         Participate in a Reentry Life Simulation

Additional breakout sessions with specific topics are also being provided on the following topics of discussion. These sessions are as follows:

Mental Health Crisis: Meeting People Where They Are

This session will provide an overview of the Mental Health Co-Responder and Crisis Intervention programs.  These collaborative interventions are combining community policing and mental health case management to effectively evaluate the needs of those in crisis to determine the best course of action that keeps both the individual and the community safe.  Learn how successful this approach is in meeting people where they are and providing links to services with the hope that criminal justice intervention is not needed.  

Working on Reentry Issues with Diverse Populations

This workshop explains how understanding and embracing diversity is advantageous to both the service provider and the individual being served.  Learn the important key elements to working with diverse populations within the criminal justice system to improve overall outcomes.  If you want to understand the impact this can have on the work you do then this is a session you do not want to miss.  


The Effects of Housing Instability on the Reentry Population

Housing is often listed as the number one barrier for returning citizens.  There are a number of barriers to finding affordable and stable housing.  Learn about these barriers as well as the local efforts being made to address this often complex issue.  This interactive session will encourage questions from the audience as well as brainstorm solutions that could benefit us all.  

The Dual Generational Approach

If this concept is new to you then do not miss this opportunity to learn more about how working with families improves outcomes for returning citizens.  We know that every person is part of a family system and yet too often we ignore the family when developing individual treatment plans.  In order for a plan to be successful, it is important that each person is viewed as part of a family group.  Learn how you can use this approach in your organization to improve whatever services you offer.   

 

Now is the time to register your attendance as space is limited and
