For individuals living with a mental illness who are incarcerated or who have been recently hospitalized.
Assisted Outpatient Treatment Services (AOT) delivers community-based mental health services under a civil commitment court order to individuals with severe and persistent mental illnesses.
AOT enables individuals to live safely within their communities, to avoid repeat hospitalizations and to ensure access to outpatient mental health services.
Collaborative Justice Services (CJS) provides effective discharge planning, linkage, and referral to community resources for non-violent offenders with mental illness who re-enter the community following release from the Essex or Morris County Correctional Systems and from municipal jails.
CJS also advocates on behalf of those consumers who are rightfully incarcerated to ensure that they receive necessary and appropriate treatment and medication during their tenure in jail. In addition, the program works with local law enforcement officers to train them on how to safely and effectively interact with individuals with mental illness who may be in crisis.
