  • Webinar Archive: The Mental Health Crisis in America's Jails

    Jun 03, 2019

    There is no question about it: This is a mental health crisis – and it’s falling on our nation’s jails to fix it. In most cases, these facilities are understaffed, underfunded and unprepared. “To stop the bleeding, facilities must be resourceful and work as a cohesive team; they have to change the culture,” said Warden Jeffrey Fewell.

    Join Warden Jeffrey Fewell of the Wyandotte County Sheriff’s Office, and Cheri Jaynes, mental health director for Wellpath, as they present the issue, its causes, and what they’re doing to address it in this informative webinar straight from the front lines.
