This paper presents an overview of housing options used for persons with mental illness who have had contact with the criminal justice system. Our intent is to synthesize available knowledge regarding types of housing that are available to this population, as well as which types are associated with improved outcomes for consumers. While a number of housing options exist and are currently being developed to serve this population, there is little evaluation research from which to draw conclusions about what works. Hence, we focus on extracting promising practices that can inform housing options or programs for persons with mental illness who have had contact with the justice system. (Authors)
