Addressing mental health issues to reduce recidivism

MHC’s Shara Biggs, LPC/MHSP- Supervisor of Liaison Services, was quoted by Nashville Business Journal this week.  The article promoted MHC’s work in the jails, with offenders challenged by mental illness, to help reduce recidivism.

Shara was a guest speaker at CoreCivic’s inaugural “Reentry” Conference, which brought together professionals from across the country to learn best practices.
