A challenge common to all correctional institutions is the effective management of both behavioral and physical health, in order to ensure wellbeing for each individual, as well
as the collective institution.
All too often, behavioral problems are dealt with using a community model which neglects to manage the behavioral health in the context of a security setting. We are the notable exception.
Our approach at Correctional Mental Health Services (CMHS) is unique. We are recognized as a pioneer in developing behavioral healthcare programs that are specifically designed for correctional facilities. Our programs support quality as well as continuity of care. It begins from the outset with intake screening, and includes ongoing treatment, appropriate monitoring and management of all who need it, regardless of diagnosis. Finally, we are involved with the critical coordination of aftercare for inmates as they return to the community setting.
We specialize in behavioral health programs and services, designed to meet the needs of each correctional facility, that are proven effective, cost-efficient, and easily integrated into both existing
or planned health management programs.
It is with pride that CMHS services are now available as either a stand-alone mental health service,
or in conjunction with Conmed Healthcare Management, Inc. (CONMED). We can provide truly comprehensive single-source contracted healthcare services to correctional facilities nationwide.
As CONMED’s subsidiary, we have access to expanded resources and the financial depth to permit us to grow. Our national strategy is to offer the best value possible, which is critical during these economically challenging times.
We invite your interest whether you represent a correctional facility, seek a career opportunity in the correctional field, or are a CONMED shareholder. We look forward to serving your needs.
