In collaboration with Mountain Plains ATTC, The Great Plains Tribal Chairmen’s Health Board’s symposium brought together multi-disciplinary stakeholders in South Dakota’s West River Region. The idea for this symposium began in response to this crisis and the need for culturally aligned diversion, intervention, and re-entry programs for AIs with substance use disorder in the criminal justice system. Topics included Lakota Culture, historical trauma, the public health perspective, and the purpose of the new Pennington County initiatives. The July 10, 2018 was the first step in exploring the intersection between criminal justice, Lakota culture and behavioral health.
The Exploring the Intersection of Criminal Justice, Lakota Culture, & Behavioral Health symposium report is a summation of findings from the July 10, 2018 meeting and provides ideas for next steps.
