Description

This study explored facilitators and barriers associated with engaging criminogenic interventions in community mental health service settings. Focus groups and guided large group discussions were conducted with 46 consumers, providers and administrators. Results suggest that participants were generally supportive of offering criminogenic interventions to justice involved persons with serious mental illness in community based mental health service settings. Key issues to consider when engaging criminogenic interventions in community mental health service settings include identifying sustainable funding sources, providing adequate training for staff, and tailoring the delivery and pace of the content to the particular treatment needs of SMI participants.
