Mental illness can have a profound impact in all areas of a person's life. It is not uncommon for an individual with a mental illness to have contact with the criminal justice system. 

Washington County strives to:

  • Develop a collaborative relationship with the various components of the criminal justice/corrections system
  • Identify and provide treatment for individuals with behavioral health needs who are in jail, on probation, or who have frequent contact with law enforcement
  • Continually evaluate the services currently being offered to ensure all individuals involved in corrections can have access to appropriate treatment
