Mental Health in Oklahoma City

Oklahoma City leaders in law enforcement, the health department, and the judicial system wish to tackle overcrowding in city jails. They plan to establish a program to assist low-level offenders who may not need to be behind bars. Community health workers will use a shared database to identify inmates in need of mental health care, basic medical care, food, or housing. Health workers will then connect the inmates with those services. 

Each year, Oklahoma City invests $3.5 million to fund social service groups. These programs aim to help people who need job training, health services, or help for domestic violence. The city funds two organizations that provide housing for residents with mental health concerns.
