Information:
In June 2017, the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) released two reports: Indicators of Mental Health Problems Reported by Prisoners and Jail Inmates, 2011-12 and Drug Use, Dependence and Abuse Among State Prisoners and Jail Inmates, 2007-2009.

During this webinar, BJS statistician Jennifer Bronson will review the findings of the reports and discuss how jurisdictions around the country (namely Justice and Mental Health Collaboration Program grantees) can use this information.

The reports are accessible at the following locations:
