Each year, nearly 70,000 youth in America enter the juvenile justice system and are confined in correctional facilities. Many children younger than 18 years of age are forced to consider these institutions their home as they live out their sentence. A large body of evidence has shown that a majority of these detained adolescents commit crimes due to untreated mental health or from enduring years of constant mental abuse. These issues are often carried over into their sentences and juvenile facilities are not well equipped or properly trained, leaving many behavioral symptoms unattended. Mind Over Matter Telepsychiatry aims to utilize the emerging innovations of telehealth technology to transform mental health service delivery within the juvenile justice system. The mission is to provide accessible, effective, and quality care to vulnerable and often overlooked youth populations in order to prepare them for successful reentry into the community. Mind Over Matter Telepsychiatry’s goal is to work alongside juvenile halls located in The Greater Los Angeles area to become the primary provider of behavioral telehealth services. This proposal will provide an in-depth analysis of how Mind Over Matter Telepsychiatry aim to accomplish these objectives.
