CSG Justice Center Releases Guide to Manage Mentally Ill in Community Corrections
Thinking About Corrections


The Council of State Governments (CSG) Justice Center announced today the release of a policy and practice guide for managing mentally ill offenders in the community (see attached press release).  The publication, Improving Outcomes for People with Mental Illnesses under Community Supervision, was developed with support of the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation and the National Institute of Corrections.  The guide reviews the body of recent research on community corrections supervision for people with mental illness and translates findings to help officials develop effective interventions.  Link on the PDF of the guide above, or limited printed copies of the document are available from the NIC Information Center.  More information regarding the mentally ill in corrections is available on the NIC Projects pages and Justice Center's Consensus Project website.
