The Wisconsin Office of Children's Mental Health has announced publication of a new fact sheet on disparities in youth justice and what communities can do to make a difference. It can be found at children.wi.gov.

The Office of Children's Mental Health recommends that communities address the mental health needs of youth and increase after school activities, schools keep kids in school, and policymakers continue to invest in community-based services and return 17- year-olds to the youth justice system so they receive mental health treatment.
