Mental health issues affect about half of us at some point in our lifetime. In this webinar, we will explore some of the mental issues facing victims (and others) within the criminal justice system. At the end of the hour, attendees will be able to identify the most common psychiatric ailments, including anxiety, depression, substance abuse, and PTSD. They will know resources for treatment referrals, common barriers to accepting treatment, and ways to alleviate some barriers.
