Chief Justice's Task Force Report on Criminal Justice and Mental Health

Group: Wisconsin Court System

URL: https://www.wicourts.gov/courts/programs/docs/alttaskforcereport.pdf

Description

The report is the result of work begun in February of 2010, when Chief Justice Shirley S. Abrahamson launched a statewide task force to develop recommendations to improve responses to persons with mental illnesses who are at risk of incarceration or in contact with the criminal justice system. Wisconsin distinguished itself in a grant-seeking competition sponsored by the Council of State Governments and was awarded a small grant to assist with the planning process. People inside and outside the mental health and criminal justice systems know well the serious issues government, communities, treatment providers, law enforcement and families face when people with mental illness come into contact with the criminal justice system, and they need not be catalogued here. The need is clear for coordinated and cooperative statewide and community efforts to address these issues and our performances.
