BEYOND THE BRIDGE
Our mental health program (Beyond the Bridge) at Rikerís Island Jail (a daily inmate population of around 14,000) reported that in the first year of implementation, violent incidents among the population receiving our curriculum decreased by 31%, while violent incidents across the facility only decreased by 15%. In an experimental cell unit using our programming at Rikerís Island, violence went down 46% while in a mirror cell unit not using the materials violence went up by almost 500%.
Beyond the Bridge and its evaluation process was selected for presentation at the American Public Health Association 140th Annual Meeting and Expo in San Francisco: https://apha.confex.com/apha/140am/webprogram/Paper268314.html.
