This volume of the Mid-Southern Journal of Criminal Justice offers articles that the reader may find informative and interesting. The topics are timely, and the content may spur thoughtful insights and ideas about useful applications and models of counseling, education, and mental health programming as well as further important conversations about the intersections of race, gender, class, and the legal system. The articles in this volume present two relevant themes with regards to needed reforms. First, the articles encourage readers to identify the need for further reform to both criminal legal and social programming to assist persons with mental and physical health challenges. Second, they support the need for the justice system to address systemic issues that disproportionately effect various communities.
