CCJBH 20th anniversary logo

CCJBH is a 12-member council chaired by the secretary of CDCR and comprised of representatives from the Department of State Hospitals (DSH), the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS), and appointed experts from criminal justice and behavioral health fields. The council is tasked with several statutory goals including: investigating, identifying, and promoting cost-effective strategies that prevent adults and juveniles with behavioral health needs from becoming incarcerated; identifying incentives for state and local justice and health programs to adopt such approaches; reporting activities to the legislature; and providing recommendations for improving the cost-effectiveness of existing behavioral health and criminal justice programs.
