Summary:
The Criminal Justice Mental Health Service was commissioned in 2014 to deliver Liaison and Diversion services to a range of Police and Court locations in South London.

The team's objective is to identify, screen and support people coming into contact with the justice system that have one or more acute or existing vulnerabilities. Our aim is to raise awareness and understanding of mental health issues within the criminal justice pathway, to make subsequent improvements in outcomes and inequalities, to reduce re-offending rates and to reduce pressure on the police and court service.

The service provides support to Police custody suites within Lambeth, Southwark, Croydon and Lewisham and has input into Camberwell Green Magistrates Court and Croydon magistrates Court.

The service ethos is to proactively intervene at the earliest possible opportunity in the Criminal Justice system pathway, so that those in need of support receive appropriate care and treatment in a timely fashion.
