Victims of youth violence (e.g., child abuse and neglect, dating or sexual violence) are at increased risk for serious mental health and other problems, including substance abuse and suicide. We provide expert training, communications, data management, and evaluation services for programs that target the difficult issues of youth violence and child welfare, with the goal of breaking the cycle of violence.
More than 2 million people are incarcerated in the United States. Justice-involved populations experience high rates of chronic medical conditions, and substance abuse and mental illness are prevalent. Health and criminal justice agencies face a significant challenge in providing appropriate, high-quality and cost-effective care to these individuals.
