As states and counties struggle with workforce shortages and tight budgets for behavioral health services, the use of technology offers new opportunities for effective service interventions for justice-involved persons with a mental illness. This report highlights exemplary programs at the state and county level that are successfully leveraging the use of technology to expand service and program capabilities. The featured programs were chosen because they are using technology to maximize communication and data-sharing among stakeholders at various interception points along the Sequential Intercept Model. The report was completed under contract to NASMHPD’s Technical Assistance Coalition and funded by the Center for Mental Health Services/SAMHSA.
