Eliminate the Wait Toolkit
It is time to right size competency restoration services for Texans by taking a holistic approach to this challenge. The Texas Judicial Commission on Mental Health and the Texas Health and Human Services Commission asks judges, prosecutors, defense attorneys, sheriffs and jail staff, police, and behavioral health providers to join their collaborative effort to change how Texas serves people at the intersection of mental health and criminal justice. We all have a role to play to ELIMINATE THE WAIT.
This toolkit includes a set of strategies that stakeholders can implement to help ELIMINATE THE WAIT for inpatient competency restoration services in Texas.
