The Wayne State School of Social Work has announced the creation of the Center for Behavioral Health and Justice, led by Dean Sheryl Kubiak. This purpose of this ‘center of excellence’ is to assist local communities, organizations, and behavioral health and law enforcement agencies across Michigan in diverting individuals with mental health and substance use disorders from the criminal justice system to appropriate treatment. Specifically, the center will provide these stakeholders with expertise, evaluation, support, training and technical assistance to inform effective, evidence-based policy and programs.

In celebration of this launch, the Center would like to invite you to attend a Welcome event in the Wayne State Prentis building. A brief welcome by Dean Kubiak will be followed by remarks from a Honorable Judge Timothy M. Kenny  (Third Judicial Circuit Court of Michgian) and Chief Forensic Psychiatrist for the State of MI, Debra M. Pinals, M.D. 

Light refreshments will be provided.

PLEASE NOTE THE LOCATION FOR THIS EVENT HAS CHANGED. IT WILL NO LONGER BE IN PRENTIS, BUT WILL BE HELD IN THE McGREGOR MEMORIAL CONFERENCE CENTER IN THE CENTRAL ATRIUM.
