Reducing Justice Involvement For People with Mental Illness.

Contact Information


Funding for the Pennsylvania Mental Health and Justice Center of Excellence ended on March 31, 2016, and we do not anticipate that it will be renewed. As we complete our six years of working with those throughout Pennsylvania involved with behavioral health and justice, we want to thank Judge John Zottola and the members of the Mental Health and Justice Advisory Committee, and the staff members of the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency and the Office of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services, respectively. We also thank all the communities throughout Pennsylvania with whom we've had the privilege of working since 2010.

Questions that might have been addressed to the CoE should now be directed to PCCD [Robert Merwine (rmerwine@pa.gov) or Jackie Weaknecht (jweaknecht@pa.gov)] or OMHSAS [Terry Moloney (tmoloney@pa.gov) or Jessica Penn Shires (jpennshire@pa.gov)].
