Mental Health Courts Webinar (September 21, 2015)

Mental Health America Webinars

People with mental health conditions are disproportionately represented in America’s jails and prisons. An estimated 56 percent of state prisoners, 45 percent of federal prisoners, and 64 percent of jail inmates are reported to have a behavioral health condition. There are further disparities, such as for women and minority inmates, where the percentages with behavioral health issues are shockingly high. While the public widely perceives people with mental health and substance use conditions as dangerous, the reality is that for most who are repeatedly arrested it is for petty offenses. One widely touted solution to this problem is the expansion of specialty Mental Health Courts.Please join us for this FREE webinar that will provide information about the characteristics of effective mental health courts, and offer information about best practices from both sides of the bench.

FREE WEBINAR JULY 12: SUPREME COURT REDISTRICTING CASES

National Conference of State Legislatures

If it feels like your state just finished redistricting, the 2020 census is right around the corner. This term the Supreme Court was busy deciding redistricting cases that came out of the last census. These cases will impact the next set of maps your state draws. NCSL and the State and Local Legal Center have joined forces to organize a webinar focusing on the four redistricting cases the Supreme Court decided this term. The free webinar will be conducted at noon ET on Tuesday, July 12. The webinar will of course cover Evenwel v. Abbott, which wasn’t just the biggest redistricting case of the term—it was one of the biggest cases of the entire term. The Supreme Court unanimously preserved the status quo allowing states to apportion districts to meet the requirement of one-person, one-vote based on total population (including non-voters such as undocumented persons and children).
