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.

Integrating Criminal Justice and Behavioral Health Data

Data warehouses, which are central repositories used to house information from multiple sources, can consolidate individual- and system-level data and allow for data tracking to identify relationships and trends. This information can guide decision-making for criminal justice-behavioral health partnerships—built to help minimize justice involvement among people with mental illnesses and substance use disorders—and pinpoint where to target resources and interventions. This checklist is intended to help agencies involved in the criminal justice-behavioral health partnership assess their current information technology infrastructure and guide the development of a cross-system data warehouse.
