Title of Presentation: Perspectives: Mental Health Concerns for RSAT Programs & Participants
Description: Many individuals incarcerated for substance use related crimes also suffer from a mental health disorder, and many of those are undiagnosed at the time of incarceration. This month’s webinar will address concerns for RSAT programs regarding mental health and approaches that can be taken to better understand these diagnoses. Supporting inmates with co-occurring disorders (COD’s) is a challenging endeavor any RSAT program. Furthermore, individuals with COD’s are more likely to face challenges post-incarceration, such as homelessness, relapse and recidivism. Recognizing these challenges can help program staff better support and treat their clients, so the clients are better prepared for re-entry.

After completing this webinar, participants will be able to:
  • Understand how to prioritize substance abuse treatment goals for clients with mental health disorders  
  • Identify RSAT clients with mental health needs 
  • Recognize specific drugs of abuse that affect mental health disorders and medications that support recovery
