Justice Initiatives

Scale and Gavel

OCHN offers a wide variety of preventive and intervention services that address the needs of people prior, during, and after an encounter with law enforcement, the courts, or jail. 

  • When alternatives to incarceration are made available to youth or adults involved with the justice system, paths to recovery are created. 
  • OCHN works with community partners to connect people to the support they need. 
  • Valuable public mental health services are necessary to ensure that jails do not replace institutions as an acceptable option for non-violent offenders with a mental illness.
