Symptoms of mental illness can interfere with a personís ability to participate in vocational tasks, healthy relationships and even handle routine activities of daily living. This impairment can contribute to the circumstances that lead to a personís involvement in the criminal justice system or can interfere with their ability to successfully complete requirements and move past this episode in their life. Staff working with these clients need to know what to look for in order to be able to make referrals to services that can help their clients succeed. This workshop will introduce participants to (1) a variety of signs and symptoms that indicate a client may be experiencing a mental health issue; (2) skills that participants can practice during the workshop enabling them to more effectively approach clients developing a mental health problem or experiencing a crisis; and (3) an overview of the kinds of services to which such clients can be referred..
