This conference represents the integration of public health and criminal justice reform and represents a unique opportunity to have a cross sector and multidisciplinary conversation about the intersection of opioid use, homelessness, mental health and the need to increase social supports and harm reduction strategies.
Day #1 experts on medication assisted treatment and CJ populations will be featured in addition to community-based responses to the opioid epidemic.
Day #2 is all about reentry housing and employment and Nancy LeVigne, the Director of the Urban Institute is one of the plenaries.
Day #3 Richard Cho, the Director of Behavioral Health for the Council of State Governments, will be taking about the intersection of homelessness, mental health and county jail populations through the lens of the Step Up initiative, which he is leading across the country. Pierce, King and Spokane Counties have signed on to the initiative.
