11:00 AM BREAK
11:15 AM Interface with the Justice Community and Opportunities for Intervention
In the United States in the 1960s, deinstitutionalization of persons with mental illness shifted psychiatric care from long-term inpatient hospitals to community mental health and other outpatient facilities. Unintended consequences, including lack of adequate funding to mental health centers, lack of employment opportunities, and a dearth of low-income housing resulted in many people not receiving either adequate treatment or housing. Many mentally ill people were on the streets and had significant interface with the criminal justice system. This panel will examine that interface across the three components of criminal justice: law enforcement, criminal courts, and incarcerations. With a focus on each of the components and with a global perspective, panelists will present the challenges to balancing civil rights and public interest, the opportunities for creative interventions, and the obstacles and risks that remain. The presentations will be followed by discussion with the workshop participants.

of human development and social ecology are often used to design interventions that aim to elicit behavior change, especially those that examine violence or mental health from a life-course perspective. This session will examine the successful use and limitations of randomized controlled trials for determining efficacy of interventions for violence prevention; the alternative rigorous evaluation designs to evaluate their effectiveness and impact; and how well the programs are being implemented. Evaluation findings can lead to program or intervention adaptation, quality improvement for existing programs, improved design for future interventions, and sustainability for effective interventions. Partners to engage in evaluations and program impact improvement efforts will also be discussed.

On February 26–27, 2014, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine’s Forum on Global Violence Prevention convened a workshop titled Mental Health and Violence: Opportunities for Prevention and Early Intervention. The workshop brought together advocates and experts in public health and mental health, anthropology, biomedical science, criminal justice, global health and development, and neuroscience to examine experience, evidence, and practice at the intersection of mental health and violence. Participants explored how violence impacts mental health and how mental health influences violence and discussed approaches to improve research and practice in both domains. This publication summarizes the presentations and discussions from the workshop.
