Description

Mental health services in local and regional correctional facilities. Requires the Board of Corrections to adopt standards for mental health services in local and regional correctional facilities, which shall include a requirement that (i) the sheriff of every county and city in which a local correctional facility is located enter into an agreement with the community services board serving that county or city for the delivery of mental health and substance abuse services in the local correctional facility and (ii) the administrator of every regional correctional facility enter into an agreement with the community services board or boards serving the counties and cities participating in the regional correctional facility for the delivery of mental health and substance abuse services in the regional correctional facility. If a sheriff contracts with an entity other than a community services board for the provision of mental health and substance abuse services, the sheriff may continue to use such alternative service. The bill also requires community services boards to provide mental health and substance abuse services to individuals in local and regional correctional facilities and establishes a procedure for the delivery of services to individuals released from local and regional correctional facilities by the community services board serving the local or regional correctional facility or the community services board serving the county or city in which the individual will reside upon his release. The provisions of the bill are contingent on funding in a general appropriation act. Amends § 37.2-500, § 53.1-68, of the Code of Virginia. Read the Bill »
