Exploring the Intersection Between Mental Health and Juvenile Justice

The event is full, and registration is now closed!

Mental health issues and learning disabilities are widespread among U.S. juvenile justice system children. Finding ways to treat, educate and rehabilitate these children effectively is crucial, yet state juvenile justice departments often lack the resources to do so.

Hosted at Baker Hall on September 6, this conference will bring together local Houston area county officials, child health experts, and community members impacted by the juvenile justice system to discuss ways to meet the mental health needs of children in custody.

The event is open to the public.

This conference is co-sponsored by the Baker Institute Child Health Policy Program and the Minaret Foundation.
