Pre-Arraignment Mental Health Services
While NYC has many programs for those involved in the criminal justice system, they only target post-arraignment outcomes in the form of ATD/ATI programs. But what abt those who get ROR'ed & constantly cycle b/w arrests/releases? Their MH issues never get addressed. I propose a new program where all receive a MH evaluation pre-arraignment so they may receive the proper MH treatment they so desperately need, as opposed to getting released with untreated mental illness only to reoffend.
