This Family Resources Inventory was compiled to assist the Mental Health/Juvenile Justice Action Network States in the identification of publications and resources that address the barriers families and caretakers may face when a youth is involved in the juvenile justice system, and provide them with advocacy tips and information on how best to navigate the intricacies of the justice system. In addition, there are resources geared toward juvenile justice staff and policymakers that can assist in the reformation of policies and procedures to address barriers between families and the justice system and improve how systems interact with family and youth.
