What Works and What’s Promising

  • Jada Hector
  • David Khey


This book came about through the collective experience of both authors. Jada and Dave independently and together on various projects have seen a need to bring crime and mental health to the forefront of many conversations not only in the professional realm but also in working with students. As it stands today, students graduating in criminal justice will more than likely encounter justice-involved individuals with mental health concerns. It is important that those students turned professional understand the obstacles and cracks in the system that individuals face. This book is just a starting point for many conversations to come on these topics. The hope is that beginning the discussion can also begin the solution.
