  1. Is there any support for currently incarcerated individuals in Syracuse at the Justice Center who need treatment and therapy that is not available to them in jail.

  2. I am in search of resources for incarcerated individuals in Syracuse who need treatment that the jail cannot provide. Please email me with any information or contacts. Thank you

    • Did you talk with the mental health providers at the justice center? Is the person who has charges represented by a lawyer who is informing the judge there are mental health issues? Have you contacted Onondaga county’s point person for Assisted Outpatient treatment to see if your loved one fits the criteria ( you can look at the NY state website for the criteria for AOT)? Does the incarcerated person want services? CIRCARE has a person assigned as a case manager to assist people coming out of jail. IF the person wants services after jail than Hutchings has a walk in clinic.
      Not sure what ” services” the jail isn’t providing since they have professionals who evaluate the inmates for mental health services and a psychiatrist who comes in to prescribe. Keep asking questions at the jail until you get answers. There is always a higher chain of command.
