Event description
A detailed review of evidence-based practice concerning “what works” in community corrections and re-entry.

About this Event

MHA of the Midsouth and NAMI Tennessee invite you to the first-ever joint re-entry summit hosted by Meharry Medical College. Participants will have an opportunity to hear from Governor Bill Lee, Commissioner of Corrections Tony Parker and Sheriff Daron Hall about the current vision for re-entry for citizens returning to the community from state prisons and jail systems. The summit will include a detailed review of evidence-based practice concerning “what works” in community corrections and re-entry. Afternoon sessions will include a panel providing updates from half-way houses and re-entry centers, as well as, a panel sharing insights on where to find key resources needed to assist persons in re-entry or court diversion programs.

Participants should expect to take away a road map of key evidence-based practices, re-entry ideas and evidence-based strategies needed to support our returning citizens in the successful re-entry to society. This summit will be useful for staff involved in re-entry efforts in prisons, jails and community corrections or re-entry centers; behavioral health and mental health resource providers in the community; advocates for the incarcerated, family and friends, and employers of our returning citizens. Parking and lunch are included in the price.

We will provide Mental Health First Aid training to law enforcement officers, firefighters, EMS staff, veterans and their families, and anyone who would meet the traditional definition of first responder on May 19. This track is offered in conjunction with the Re-diversion program. The first 30 participants to sign up via Eventbrite will be registered for the 8-hour course. Lunch and parking will be provided. This course is free, seating is limited.

Mental Health First Aid is an eight-hour codified training curriculum, specifically modified to address the law enforcement population and provide a general awareness of mental health issues. It offers information and skills to support someone in a mental health crisis or who is developing a mental health problem.
