Invitation to Strengthen Education and Workforce Development Services for Justice-Involved Young Adults with Disabilities

Houston Area Rehabilitation Association (HARA) invites Vocational Rehabilitation Professionals, other state and local education agencies and postsecondary institutions, social services agencies, workforce development agencies, and other community organizations to participate in this FREE training on how to better serve and improve the outcomes of justice-involved young adults with disabilities. Many individuals do not know what happens to this population when they become involved with the justice system. How are mental health impairments or other disabilities being addressed during this time? What are the outcomes? What kind of interventions are available?

What happens in court? Please join us for intervention team training to address these questions about youths and/or adults (including those on parole or probation) from further involvement with the law.

Speakers: Dr. Jack Callahan, Senior Advocate for Disability Rights Texas Officer Rebecca Skillern, M.A, LPC-Supervisor, Houston Police Department

Betty Adams, Assistant Deputy Director for Forensic Mental Health, The Harris Center
