Bridging the Gaps Between Criminal Justice and Mental Illness Summit Report

Posted on Apr 21, 2015

The National Alliance on Mental Illness of Ohio, with the support of funding from the Ohio Office of Attorney General, Mike DeWine, contracted with Policy Research Associates (PRA) to provide a strategic planning workshop to inform the work of Attorney General’s Task Force on Criminal Justice and Mental Illness. The Bridging the Gaps between Criminal Justice and Mental Health Summit, which was held February 5th, 2015, was convened to address the overrepresentation of individuals with mental illness in the criminal justice system and to introduce the Sequential Intercept Model as a planning tool to strategically inform legislation, policy, planning, and funding. The Summit served to identify opportunities for coordination and collaboration among state and local stakeholders, inform state and local stakeholders about best practices in the behavioral health and correctional fields, and to consider the impact of health care reform, Ohio SB 43, “Outpatient Treatment Law” and state behavioral health and criminal justice initiatives on justice-involved populations.

Adult Care Facility Resource Information

Adult Care Facility Resource Information

In 2013, NAMI Ohio was asked to assist the state of Ohio in developing a comprehensive listing of adult care facilities (ACFs)  and the services they offer.  Specifically, we sent a survey to each facility licensed by the state and asked for information such as the types of individuals they serve (male, female, age, etc.), special needs accommodations, medication assistance, smoking policies, staffing, transportation assistance, and more.  The information was to be added to an existing interactive website in which users are able to search a database for possible nursing homes for their loved ones.  Unfortunately, after NAMI Ohio collected the information, we learned that the state had decided not to expand the website to include ACFs.  Therefore, we are making this information available through our own website.  However, users are forewarned that the information contained in this spreadsheet was collected over two years ago and may no longer be accurate.  We are making it available because we believe that some information is better than no information.  Please contact the home directly if you have any questions regarding the services they offer or space availability.
