Introduction

This Resource Package for Paroling Authority Members is intended to provide basic information along with a guide to a more extensive set of literature and practical tools regarding the significant portion of justice involved individuals who are diagnosed with mental illnesses and substance use disorders.  By developing partnerships with other state-level justice and mental health stakeholders, paroling authority members can support and encourage the implementation of sound, evidence-based interventions for this population.  By implementing the practice targets recommended in this Resource Package, as  guided by the Framework for Reducing Recidivism and Promoting Recovery Among Offenders with Mental Illnesses and/or Substance Abuse Disorders —paroling authorities can contribute to a more effective targeting of available resources to reduce risk of re-offense and support treatment and recovery of this population.
