Synopsis: Increasing prevalence of individuals with mental health disorders in the criminal justice system represents a major public health concern. A conservative estimate is that 7 percent of adults who come into contact with police and 16 percent of those in jail have a mental illness. This study's goal was to determine the number and percentage of adults who had a severe mental illness and criminal justice involvement who also were involved in the child welfare system and/or the juvenile justice system prior to their 18th birthday and examine differences in demographics, interactions, and costs as adults.
