Republished from WEKU.

Starting next week, the Kentucky Judicial Commission on Mental Health is running a series of conferences across the state to discuss behavioral health services.

It’s meant to help those impacted by the justice system get better connected to those services.

The commission says it wants to use the series to improve the Kentucky court system’s response to those suffering from disorders, mental health illness or disabilities.

Attendees can also receive educational credits for Continuing Legal Education, Continuing Judicial Education, Continuing Professional Education and social work.

The series begins next Thursday with conferences across Kentucky scheduled until September. A full schedule and information on how to register is available here.
