Milestone HCQU West: People with IDD in the Criminal Justice System

Hosted by the Milestone Health Care Quality West (HCQU).

Learn unique issues facing people with IDD in the criminal justice system and what The Arc’s National Center on Criminal Justice and Disability (NCCJD) is doing to address them.

NCCJD is a 10-year old center housed within The Arc of the United States that provides advocacy and education on the topic of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities involved in the system as either victims, defendants or as incarcerated individuals. The Center offers the Department of Justice funded Pathways to Justice training program that creates Disability Response Teams to proactively address crisis situations before they arise.

This webinar will provide data on why this is an urgent issue, ideas on how to address more common concerns, and inquire about topics participants what to learn more about regarding criminal justice issues in upcoming webinars.

Milestone is a community-based nonprofit organization that provides a continuum of support, treatment, and residential and vocational services to individuals with behavioral health challenges, substance use disorders, and developmental disabilities. The Milestone Health Care Quality Units serve 18 western Pennsylvania counties by providing training to developmental disability providers, thus setting the standard for care.
