The Sequential Intercept Mapping (SIM) is renowned for being a community-based strategic plan to address the criminalization of adults with mental and substance use disorders. “Revising the Paradigm for Jail Diversion for People with Mental and Substance Use Disorders: Intercept 0” presents a new model, Intercept 0, that expands the Sequential Intercept Model from five intercepts to six.
This new intercept, Intercept 0, encompasses early intervention points for people with mental and substance use disorders before they are placed under arrest. This enables stakeholders from the mental health, substance use, and criminal justice systems to consider the full spectrum of real-world interactions experienced by these people as they navigate through the criminal justice system.
“Revising the Paradigm for Jail Diversion for People with Mental and Substance Use Disorders: Intercept 0” was written by Policy Research staff members Dan Abreu, Travis Parker, Chanson Noether, Henry J. Steadman, and Brian Case. It was published by Behavioral Health Sciences and the Law.
