Criminal Justice / Mental Health Consensus Project

From Cornell Law Library's InSite
current awarness service (2/20/2006):

"Coordinated by the Council of State Governments (CSG),
the Criminal Justice / Mental Health Consensus Project
(the Project) is a national effort to help policymakers at all
levels, as well as those in the criminal justice and mental health
professions 'improve the response to people with mental
illness who become involved in, or are at risk of involvement in,
the criminal justice system.'

In addition to providing the text of the Project Report, the
website provides other resources including information on
programs, significant national projects, and technical assistance.
Profiles of programs are organized into a database that can be
searched or browsed, and users may limit their searches by
jurisdiction, issue, and other parameters."
