A prevention and early intervention mental health program for incarcerated individuals
About Project In-Reach
The Neighborhood House Association (NHA) Project In-Reach program is an outreach and engagement program designed to help incarcerated individuals with substance use and/or mental health disorders as they prepare for re-entry into the community. Program goals include educating clients about mental health, substance use and coping mechanisms, decreasing instances of relapse, diminishing the impact of untreated health, mental health and/or substance use issues, and reducing recidivism.
