JPLI Judge Stephen S. Goss Award Recipients Announced


JPLI Judge Stephen S Goss Award Recipients Announced

For more than 10 years, the Judges' and Psychiatrists' Leadership Initiative (JPLI) has brought together experts in the field of mental health and criminal justice to address the overcriminalization of mental health in the justice system.

On May 12, 2021, JPLI held its inaugural leadership summit celebrating judicial and psychiatric leadership to improve outcomes for people with behavioral health needs. The summit included the presentation of the Judge Stephen S. Goss Memorial Award for leadership by a judge and a psychiatrist. It also featured a candid discussion about competency to stand trial based on the recently released report Just and Well: How States Are Rethinking Competency to Stand Trial.

The 2021 recipients of the JPLI Judge Stephen S. Goss Award were former Ohio Supreme Court Justice and APAF Board member, Justice Evelyn Lundberg Stratton, Ret. and Dr. Kristin Ochoa, Medical Director at the Office of Diversion and Reentry at the Los Angeles County Department of Health Services.
