Objective D: Enhance funding levels to assure effectiveness of existing community programs.
Rates of incarceration and recidivism indicate that community mental health programs do not always have adequate funding resources to monitor mentally ill offenders post release and, therefore, to adequately protect the individual and society. Cost can range considerably, up to significant levels for persons in the Institutional Discharge Plus program.
339. The Alaska Mental Health Board will annually assess the need for funding for community programs.
340. The Alaska Mental Health Board will request needed enhancements in budget requests.
Responsible party (actions 1-2): Alaska Mental Health Board
