Our focus on juvenile justice helps jurisdictions craft developmentally appropriate responses to the behavioral health needs of youth in contact with the juvenile justice system. Our goal in working with jurisdictions is to generate better outcomes for vulnerable young people and maintain safety for youth and their families, youth-serving professionals, and communities. Our researched-based, data-driven initiatives improve life opportunities for youth through systems and practice improvements in communities, jurisdictions, and tribal nations.
