CCA's upcoming Homelessness Policy Committee highlights the intersection between mental health, the criminal justice system and homelessness in LA County; research indicates that formerly incarcerated individuals are ten times more likely to be homeless than the general public. CCA is committed to advancing comprehensive solutions to homelessness including systems-level change of our jails and public health services. Please join us for presentations and a round table discussion focused on RAND Corporation’s recently released report, Estimating the Size of the LA County Jail Mental Health Population Appropriate for Release into Community Services, and LA County jail systems' alternatives to incarceration.
Special Guests: Dr. Stephanie Holliday, RAND Corporation & Diana Zuñiga, LA County Dept. of Health Services
