Mental Illness Incarceration Reform
Judicial Equality for Mental Illness (JEMI), League of Women Voters (LWV), Mental Health America, and the Citizens First Congress (CFC) are working on incarceration reform legislation dealing with persons with mental illness.
With Governor Hutchinson’s support, Arkansas has the opportunity to take the first step in correcting the problem of incarcerating non-violent persons when they are in a mental health crisis. Let his office know this should be part of his prison reform package. Call the governor’s office at 501-682-2345 to ask for support of mental health crisis intervention services programs as part of the reform.
