In February 2007, the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation—Division of Adult Parole Operations modified existing Mental Health Services Continuum Program (MHSCP) services to increase the number of parole outpatient clinic sessions required for mentally ill parolees. CDCR selected the Integrated Substance Abuse Programs (ISAP) at the University of California, Los Angeles, to extend their ongoing evaluation of the MHSCP to assess the impact of these policy changes. This report summarizes findings from the final year of this evaluation, and is submitted pursuant to the approved scope of services, which calls for a final report by June 30, 2008.
