Diversion Ecosystem Resources

Tools for building successful programs from prevention to reentry.

Focused on Change

Civic Mapping is prototyping this portal for government, service providers, advocacy organizations, and peer specialists with lived experience who work at the intersections of the criminal-legal and behavioral health systems serving clients with mental illnesses, substance-use disorders, or those co-occurring.

Our overarching objective of this work is to 1) prevent people from entering the criminal-legal system altogether, 2) to divert people into treatment services and programs to get the behavioral health help they need, instead of endlessly cycling them through our jails and prisons, and 3) ensure we are making every effort to help people not recidivate.
