Collaborative Comprehensive Case Plans

The Criminogenic Risk and Behavioral Health Needs framework, released in 2012, introduced state leaders and policymakers to the concept of prioritizing supervision and treatment resources for people based on their criminogenic risk and needs, as well as their behavioral health needs. Since then, the framework has been used as a foundational tool by federal grantees of the Second Chance Act (SCA) and the Justice and Mental Health Collaboration Program (JMHCP), among others, to reduce people’s risk of recidivism and advance their recovery goals. 

Now, even though criminal justice and behavioral health professionals have the tools to identify high-risk and high-needs people in the criminal justice system, many programs still struggle to develop and implement comprehensive case plans that integrate critical behavioral health and criminogenic risk and needs information. This web-based tool can help professionals better understand which people and organizations need to be part of this case plan development and how programs can actively engage the participant in meaningful plans that improve their health outcomes and chances for reentry success.
