Call for Proposals 2021 Correctional Mental Health Care Conference



Call for Proposals Due February 19

COVID-19 represented not only a physical health crisis in 2020, but also a mental health crisis, especially for those in correctional institutions.

Delays in trials, limits on prison visits by family members and mental health staff, and suspensions in recreational activities factored into poor mental health outcomes. Facilities changed procedures, had to reduce some in-person treatment options, and often dealt with pandemic-induced lockdowns. Nevertheless, facilities innovated in 2020, finding new ways to support patients and staff, treat chronic problems of suicide and substance use disorder, and overcome resource limitations.

We are interested in your experiences with COVID-19 as well as the whole spectrum of mental health concerns in correctional settings. Submit your research, innovations, and best practices to the Correctional Mental Health Care Conference. Clinicians and administrators alike will come to learn from leaders who can help them manage mental health care delivery. Topics of interest include behavioral and mental health disorders and treatment, administrative issues, best practices, emerging legal issues, substance abuse and treatment, special populations and more.
