The aim of the Veterans Justice Outreach (VJO) program is to avoid the unnecessary criminalization of mental illness and extended incarceration among Veterans by ensuring that eligible, justice-involved Veterans have timely access to Veterans Health Administration (VHA) services, as clinically indicated. VJO specialists provide direct outreach, assessment and case management for justice-involved Veterans in local courts and jails and liaison with local justice system partners.
- With questions about the VJO national program, contact Sean Clark, J.D., national coordinator.
- If you or someone you know is a justice-involved Veteran, email the VJO specialist nearest you for assistance accessing VA health care services.
