The GAINS Re-Entry Checklist for Inmates with Mental Health Service Needs
SAMHSA’s GAINS Center's Re-Entry Initiative was launched in 2002 with A Best Practice Approach to Community Re-Entry from Jail for Inmates with Co-Occurring Disorders: the APIC Model (PDF 119kb), co-written by Fred Osher, MD, Henry J. Steadman, PhD, and Heather Barr, JD, MA.
Based on the APIC Model, GAINS developed the Re-Entry Checklist (PDF 237kb) to assist jails in transition planning for individuals with mental illness and co-occurring substance use disorders.
This checklist, which was featured in the January/February 2007 Issue of American Jails (PDF 151kb), is a quadruplicate form offering a centralized record of the individual’s potential needs and the steps taken by jail staff to ensure those needs are met upon re-entry.
Those wishing to adopt this tool can order copies direct from the printer, the Bajan Group.
