The Illinois Center of Excellence for Behavioral Health and Justice has closed due to the termination of federal funding and due to other funding and sustainability measures that did not fall into place despite our every effort. It has been our pleasure to work with you and provide assistance over the past 6 years. We are proud to have been a part of the advancement of strategies that effectively address substance use and mental health disorders for people within the justice system. We wish you every success.

The Illinois Association of Problem-Solving Courts Conference will continue. For more information on this year’s conference please visit
