Forum looks at health needs of youths in juvenile justice system

Yolo County medical providers will gather to discuss and learn more about the health needs of youths in the juvenile justice system from 12:30 to 2 p.m. Thursday, June 27, at the Woodland Community & Senior Center, 2001 East St. in Woodland.

Hosted by Yolo County’s Probation, Employment and Social Services and Health departments, in conjunction with CommuniCare Health Centers, the forum will be facilitated by all of the agency partners.

Leslie Acoca from the National Girls Health & Justice Institute also will attend to discuss health issues specific to girls in the juvenile justice system, and how to assess their health care needs.

Yolo County has received a one-year planning Positive Youth Justice Initiative grant designed to improve the employment, social and health outcomes of “crossover youths” (who have been in both the child welfare and probation systems) and higher-risk probation youths.

The goal is to identify gaps in services and supports for these youths, develop collaborations with public and community-based organizations and strategize on how to meet their needs. The Probation Department serves as the lead agency for this grant.

The forum will include discussion of points of access in the health care system, health screening needs and a gender-specific health screening tool for girls in the system.

Physical health care medical providers for youths and their families are invited and should RSVP by Friday to Michele Threlkel at [email protected].
