Strengthening connections among criminal justice agencies, behavioral health organizations, and the community to improve wellbeing for people with mental health conditions or co-occurring substance use disorders.

FY22 Planning and Implementation Guide for JMHCP Connect and Protect

This guide from The Council of State Governments Justice Center is intended to support recipients of Justice and Mental Health Collaboration Program Connect and Protect grants administered by the U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance. The guide is not intended to serve as a step-by-step blueprint, but rather to foster discussion on best practices, identify considerations for your collaborative effort, and help you work through key decisions and implementation challenges.

The planning and implementation guide is tailored to support grantees in developing and refining their law enforcement and mental health initiatives to improve outcomes for people with mental health disorders or co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders.
