Responding Effectively to Offenders with Mental Illness
Anna McLafferty (Criminal Justice Project Director, National Alliance on Mental Illness of Minnesota)
Anna leads NAMI Minnesota’s criminal justice work. NAMI Minnesota seeks to build collaboration between the mental health and criminal justice systems to prevent incarceration when appropriate, reduce recidivism and improve the lives of individuals living with mental illnesses and co-occurring disorders. Specific efforts include advocating for mental health courts, programs that divert people from the justice system into treatment, correctional officer training and jail discharge planning. Before coming to NAMI, Anna consulted for the California HealthCare Foundation and was health policy project manager for the Center for Governmental Studies in Los Angeles. Anna received a Master of Public Policy from the UCLA School of Public Affairs, where she studied health care, local economic development and program evaluation.
