Justice Initiatives

OCHN offers a wide variety of preventive and intervention services and supports that address the needs of people prior, during, and after an encounter with law enforcement, courts, or jail. OCHN is consistently working to fill the gaps through collaborative agreements with community partners to build sustainable efforts. 

 OCHN uses the Sequential Intercept Model to identify opportunities to implement strategies to divert individuals with mental health and substance use disorders.  The Sequential Intercept Model was developed by the SAMHSA GAINS Center to formalize intercept points along the criminal justice continuum.
