The JPLI Judge Stephen S. Goss Memorial Award


The JPLI Judge Stephen S. Goss Memorial Award

In honor of the late Judge Stephen S. Goss, the Judges and Psychiatrists Leadership Initiative (JPLI) has established an award to acknowledge his tireless efforts to rethink how judges and others handle cases for defendants with behavioral health needs.

In addition to his leadership in his home state of Georgia, Judge Goss was a regular contributor to the JPLI’s work, traveling the country to provide training on behavioral health to judges and advising on numerous policy guides.

The Judge Stephen S. Goss Memorial Award will recognize one judge and one psychiatrist who have demonstrated extraordinary leadership in improving the lives of people with behavioral health needs who are involved in the criminal justice system.
