Inaugural Integrated Behavioral Health Symposium


The College of Social Work is partnering with the South Carolina Department of Corrections to develop strategies to assist prisoners with mental health problems. Led by Drs. Dana DeHart and Aidyn Iachini, the program will establish a summer institute to train corrections staff and students on how to respond to inmates experiencing mental health issues, including crisis intervention, discharge planning, coordinating care with community providers and working with families of prisoners. With three-year funding by a $400,000 U.S. Department of Justice grant, the training will consist of both classroom and online components with the goal to develop a model for mental health education and training that can be used in prisons nationwide.
