New CSG Justice Center guide and resource center: Of the more than four million people under probation supervision, as many as one in six have serious mental illnesses, and many jurisdictions are developing initiatives to improve outcomes for this population. The Council of State Governments (CSG) Justice Center has released a 24-page guide, Improving Responses to People With Mental Illnesses: The Essential Elements of Specialized Probation Initiatives. Designed as a planning tool for use by state and local officials, the guide outlines each stage of initiative development, implementation, and evaluation. The CSG Justice Center has also launched the National Reentry Resource Center, an initiative to advance successful return of individuals from incarceration to their communities. The center will offer communities the best thinking on complex reentry issues, provide comprehensive resources and supports to help reduce recidivism, and give training and technical assistance to Second Chance Act grant recipients. The CSG Justice Center was selected as the site for the resource center through a competitive grant process by the Bureau of Justice Assistance, U.S. Department of Justice.
