David’s Hope is a 501c3 nonprofit organization created in 2009. Reducing incarceration and promoting treatment for those with mental illness and addictions in Arizona and across the nation is our vision. In order to accomplish our work, it is important that both mental health and criminal justice entities collaborate together. A program of David’s Hope which is bringing about this much needed change is the Arizona Mental Health Criminal Justice Coalition.
The mission of David’s Hope is to reduce the numbers of those with mental disorders and addictions who are incarcerated through Prevention, Intervention and Treatment.
David’s Hope promotes and secures treatment for those with mental health disorders and addictions through increasing collaboration between our mental health and criminal justice systems.
Evidence based practices have shown us that diverting those with mental illnesses or co-occurring mental illness and substance use disorders away from the criminal justice system and into comprehensive community-based treatment and support services will improve public safety and save tax payer dollars.
David’s Hope provides education and mentoring, teaching people how to advocate for themselves and others. We work collaboratively in the community to share information, training and resources.
Through education and mentoring we hope to create understanding in the community of the issues facing those living with mental illness involved in the criminal justice system.
