The Sequential Intercept Model: Best Practices in a Single Framework
In this workshop you will learn about the Sequential Intercept Model. We will show you how we can advocate for its adoption throughout California. We will also cover crisis intervention teams, jail diversion, mental health courts, re-entry and linkage. We will also discuss if there is one model that details an entire continuum of best practices that reduces criminalization of persons with serious mental illness and links them to proper treatment.
The conference provides an opportunity to discuss mental health issues, advocacy, and research and to network with industry professionals. Highlights include information on the latest research and tools related to mental health treatment as well as strategies for promoting improvements to the mental health system.
