The United States has one of the highest rates of incarceration in the world. Individuals involved with the criminal justice system have significant medical and behavioral health needs, including high rates of substance use, sexual risk behaviors, violence victimization, and psychiatric symptoms. In this talk, I will present my work examining disparities in behavioral health (e.g., substance use, sexual health) outcomes among individuals involved in the criminal justice system. I will highlight research that I am engaged in across the criminal justice continuum (e.g., from first point of contact with law enforcement to community supervision [probation/parole]). The presentation will conclude with current and future research on collaborative, intersectional approaches to understanding and addressing behavioral health disparities among individuals involved in the justice system.
