Offers a brief update on the Mental Health/Juvenile Justice Action Network’s strategic innovation group (SIG) projects.  Through the SIG process, the Network developed and piloted front-end diversion programs at three points of contact (schools, law enforcement, and probation), and developed and implemented a mental health training curriculum for juvenile justice staff.  The Network has recently launched a third SIG project focused on families and youth.
