March 20, 2017

MIHS invests in a new program to empower previously incarcerated young adults to successfully re-enter society. MIHS is one of only eight sites across the country to implement a model transition process back into the community. 

RELINK : Integrating Treatment and Transition implements a care coordination model to reduce recidivism for formerly incarcerated 18-26 year olds, in jail less than one year. 

How: by establishing a medical home that links individuals to primary care, behavioral health, health literacy and health financial literacy, and social services over an 18-month period. 

Team focus: assisting members with creating goals for their health, identifying barriers to their goals, and coordinating their health care and social service needs.   

The team has started enrollment for the program at the Maricopa County Adult Probation Department’s Assessment Center. With multiple stakeholders working together, RE-LINK will provide the necessary support for successful reentry into the community, breaking the cycle of drug use and crime, providing a second chance, and improving public health and public safety of the community.

The RELINK program is made possible through funding from the Department of Health and Human Service’s Office of Minority Health, and strong partnerships with the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office, Adult Probation Department, Correctional Health, Health Care Integration, Human Services Department, Justice System Planning and Information, and Keogh Health Connections.
