Mental Health in Somerville

In Middlesex County, substance abuse and mental health issues are common among the prison population. In 2017, almost half of the individuals placed in the county jail had a history of mental health challenges. Forty-one percent needed medical detoxification as a result of drug use. Among incarcerated individuals who were prescribed psychotropic medication, 76% had a co-occurring substance abuse issue. 

Middlesex County now has a program designed to help people who have completed their prison sentences but still need mental health support. This initiative is known as the Justice and Mental Health Collaboration Program. Through the program, individuals who are released from jail can access mental health treatment and other support services more easily. This helps make their transition back into mainstream society a lot smoother and reduces the likelihood of further interactions with the justice system.
