Mental Health America of Indiana realizes the impact criminal justice involvement can have on individuals, youth and their families. Looking at the underlying factors that can lead to criminal justice involvement or the ongoing needs and challenges of incarceration, it is important that we all work together. There are many challenges that can lead to justice involvement and recidivism can be impacted by so many factors. Mental Health America of Indiana believes in investing in these important needs. Providing new programming, technical assistance and support, access to treatment and resources, as well as advocating for key policies that can have an impact on how people experience the justice system, these are some of the many things we do here at MHAI. We know this can make all the difference at times and in places where people can feel the most hopeless and alone. When people find themselves involved in the justice system, it is the hope of MHAI Forensic Services to make this another place where we can find new partners standing with them, providing new hope and a new pathway to recovery.
