MTS recognizes the importance of offender reentry as a critical tool in breaking the cycle of drug use and crime, and improving the public health and public safety of our communities. Ongoing efforts are necessary at all levels of government.
The Jail Data Link program provides a web based computer cross match between the census in county jails and open DHS cases. The program identifies individuals in our targeted mental health population that should have been involved in services with community mental health providers, but have been detained in jail.
The program also provides case managers located with community providers that provide linkage to community services from county jails, and functions as a screening tool for MH Court eligibility.
