Add comment on:Treatment for Mentally Ill Offenders
Brenda Olave Campbell
This is an editorial regarding the Justice and Mental Health Collaboration Act of 2013 (H.R. 401/ S. 162) and the treatment of mentally ill offenders. Santa Cruz has developed innovative programs to provide individuals diagnosed with mental illness treatment rather than incarceration; other counties can learn and implement something similar if they had the funding.
