Reducing Recidivism Through Successful Re-Entry Conference

Our Endeavor:

To provide resources and training opportunities to community providers working with returning citizens who are Trust Beneficiaries.

Staff expertise and specialized training continues to be the most important provider needs to increase the capacity to serve offenders with cognitive impairments. The Disability Justice Initiative at the Center for Human Development receives support from the Alaska Mental Health Trust Authority to identify and provide resources to build skills and capacity for community behavioral health providers to further serve returning citizens who are Trust Beneficiaries.
