This report provides a detailed update and summary on the work of the MH/JJ Action Network's Workforce Development Strategic Innovation Group. Recognizing the need for comprehensive mental health training for juvenile justice staff that can be easily adapted for use at different points of contact, the Models for Change Mental Health/Juvenile Justice Action Network developed the Mental Health Training Curriculum for Juvenile Justice (MHTC-JJ) to fill this gap.
