The purpose of this study was to highlight the magnitude and severity of mental health pathology in the Tarrant County Treatment Alternatives to Incarceration Program (TC-TAIP) probationer population and its significant associations with substance use and criminality.
The results of this study report a heavy presence of current, symptomatic mental health pathology that is associated with increased criminality. The relationship between mental health pathology and probationer criminality was mediated by substance use.
This study concludes that TC-TAIP screening and referral practices must include comprehensive mental health screenings to make appropriate, individualized assessment/treatment referrals for probationers.
