CE Course Description
Individuals with behavioral health issues are overrepresented in jails and prisons across the United States. Most of these individuals return to their communities, families, and social networks and subsequently require community-based behavioral and physical health care services. This CE course explores the principles that provide a foundation for realizing a quality, community-based behavioral health treatment system that is responsive to all individuals with mental and substance use disorders and skilled in serving those with histories of justice involvement.
