Sequential Intercept Mapping

What is sequential Intercept Mapping?

Sequential Intercept Mapping is a cross-system approach to strengthening local strategies to implement core services that will address behavioral health, criminogenic, and social factors for justice-involved persons with mental illness.  The goals are to aid communities in developing effective systems of care that bridge criminal justice and mental health services and minimize criminal justice involvement for persons with mental illness.  Sequential Intercept Mapping promotes stakeholder collaboration by tying existing efforts together from pre-arrest through re-entry; identifying strengths and gaps; addressing issues relevant across all intercepts (e.g., culture, gender, trauma, and needs of veterans) and identifying solutions, many of which do not add costs.

Within the 1.5 days workshop, trained facilitators provide information and resources on a framework for addressing risks and needs of justice involved adults with behavioral health needs.  Opportunities and resources are identified for diverting and linking people to treatment, and gaps in services are summarized.  Facilitators provide examples of successful systems integration, promising and research based practices within Ohio and around the U.S., and a local map is created using the Sequential Intercept Model.  Participants identify areas where immediate steps will promote improved service delivery, and a local set of priorities for change are developed, resulting in a mapping report and Acton Plan for Change for implementation.

Aggregate Priority Data

During Day 1 of the workshop, opportunities and gaps in services are summarized and participants are able to identify a local set of top priorities.  On Day 2, participants break into small groups to address these top priorities by creating an action plan for change.  After each Sequential Intercept Mapping workshop, the top priorities are charted on an aggregate graph.  These graphs are utilized to inform stakeholders on top trends throughout Ohio.
