 Criminal Justice Resources

NEW PUBLICATION!!

NAMI Metropolitan Baltimore is excited to announce publication of a new book- Beyond Punishment: Helping Individuals with Mental Illness in Maryland's Criminal Justice System. This book provides information and critical resources on how to help when an individual with mental illness becomes involved with the criminal justice system in Maryland, with a focus on the mental health and criminal justice systems of Baltimore City and Baltimore County.

Beyond Punishment addresses helping an individual in jail awaiting trial, in prison serving a sentence or on probation or parole. It also discusses ways to help prevent a mental health crisis from leading to an arrest and subsequent involvement in the criminal justice system, as well as how to get mental health crisis services.
