Best Practices for Youth with Behavioral Health Needs involved with the Juvenile Justice System

Best Practices for Youth with Behavioral Health Needs involved with the Juvenile Justice System 

The juvenile justice system, much like the criminal justice system, has a high number of youth with behavioral health issues. The National Center for Mental Health and Juvenile Justice reports that approximately 70% of juvenile justice-involved youth have a diagnosable mental health disorder. This course will provide clinicians working in behavioral health organizations that provide assessment and treatment services to justice-involved youth with important information on common behavioral health disorders among justice-involved youth and assessment and treatment approaches. You will also learn about important legal issues involving sharing treatment information with juvenile justice personnel and things you can do to enhance positive outcomes of justice-involved youth.
