MacArthur Foundation's Models for Change Action Network
Funded by: The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation are collaborating on a $1 million effort targeting the behavioral health needs of youth in contact with the juvenile justice system. The project is aimed at diverting youth with behavioral health conditions from the juvenile justice system to community-based programs and services.
Description: Under this initiative, up to eight states will be selected competitively to participate based on their commitment to improving policies and programs for these youth. This innovative collaborative effort integrates SAMHSA's Policy Academy mechanism, which brings together state leadership teams to learn about effective interventions and the latest research, and the MacArthur Foundation's Models for Change Action Network strategy, which supports and links teams working on similar innovations in policy and practice. These combined resources will support state efforts to develop and implement policies and programs that divert youth away from the juvenile justice system early.

The initiative will emphasize:

  • reducing the overrepresentation of youth of color with mental and/or substance use disorders in the juvenile justice system;
  • incorporating mental, substance use and co-occurring screening and assessment practices throughout the juvenile justice system; and
  • recognizing the important roles of evidence-based practice, treatment, and trauma-informed services.
