The purpose of this project was to identify the need for mental health services for youth involved in the juvenile justice system in Los Angeles County and locate a funding source to deliver services to these youth. The literature revealed that the rate of recidivism and mental health issues affecting youth in the juvenile justice system is alarmingly high. Comprehensive mental health and community reintegration services are needed to reduce recidivism and improve youth functioning. The grant was developed to identify funding sources to implement the evidence-based practice of family integrated transitions for youth with co-occurring substance abuse and mental health disorders transitioning from secure juvenile facilities back to their homes. Actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not required for the successful completion of this project.
