Mental Health Institutions Program, Report No. 00-13, October 2000
 
Full report in PDF format


The program provides beneficial services to clients as well as a public safety benefit to Florida’s citizens.  Many institutional clients could be served in less costly and less restrictive community treatment settings.  Some clients remain in forensic hospitals after restoration of mental competencies because of either limited community treatment alternatives or a lack of mental health services in jails.
