The National Center for Mental Health and Juvenile Justice and the Mental Health and Juvenile Justice Collaborative for Change are presenting a two-part Webinar series on family involvement in the juvenile justice system. These Webinars will highlight strategies that states participating in the MacArthur Foundation's Models for Change Mental Health/Juvenile Justice Action Network have developed.

 On November 18, 2014, from 1 to 2 p.m. ET, "Working with Families" will highlight strategies to help juvenile justice systems work with families whose children have behavioral health needs. Presenters will illustrate how to better understand family perspective and improve engagement skills. Model approaches from Pennsylvania and Texas will be featured.

On December 4, 2014, from 2 to 3 p.m. ET, “Navigating the Juvenile Justice System” will highlight strategies to help families understand the juvenile justice system and learn how to access services. Model approaches from Washington and Illinois will be featured.
