Yavapai Justice and Mental Health Coalition

Building a healthy and safe community through partnerships and collaboration.

Our Story

COLLABORATIVE EFFORTS

Yavapai County Reach Out Initiative

Helping identify people with mental health and co-occurring disorders at the earliest possible criminal justice intercept and linking them to care to support them from re-offending.

Mental Health Awareness Training Program

Training for school and law enforcement/emergency services personnel in Yavapai County to recognize signs and symptoms of mental illness and identify resources available for individuals with mental illness and/or substance abuse concerns.

Pretrial Diversion Program

Alternative method for low level offenders whose offense is related to substance abuse. This program diverts criminal cases from formal court proceedings and allows for the dismissal of charges if the program is successfully completed.

Our Vision

The Yavapai Justice and Mental Health Coalition values the opportunities that our supporting justice partners, service agencies and individual members offer to our community. We acknowledge the challenges that some people face when struggling with unmet mental health and substance abuse needs and understand that these challenges have the potential for people to intersect with the criminal justice system. We have come together as a coalition because we want our community to know that we have hope. It is our pledge that our holistic, collaborative efforts will provide multiple opportunities for lives to transform; that, together, we are building a foundation for the future and stories of success. We know that collectively we are building a healthy and safe community.
