The Preventive Measures Foundation Shines Light on Mental Well-being in Reentry Simulation Program
The Preventive Measures Foundation (PMF) is proud to have hosted the Reentry Simulation Program, which took place on October 19th, 12:30 PM – 4:00 PM, at the Public Hearing Room in Allentown, PA. This transformative event spotlights the critical role of mental well-being for individuals returning to society after incarceration. Reentry is a journey filled with challenges, and PMF provides support and understanding to those navigating this path. According to a report by the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), approximately 2 out of every 3 individuals returning to society after incarceration have a history of mental health challenges, emphasizing the pressing need for comprehensive support in the reentry process. Individuals returning to society often face significant mental health hurdles, accenting the urgency of comprehensive support.
Dwayne L. Jones, CEO of Preventive Measures, Inc., remarked, "Our commitment to reentry is rooted in the belief that every individual deserves a chance to rebuild their lives. Mental wellbeing is a cornerstone of this process, and our program aims to shed light on its importance." The event was co-hosted by the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, which added, "We recognize the significance of mental health in the reentry process. This program aligns with our commitment to criminal justice reform and creating a more inclusive society." Paula Gonzalez (MSW LSW), Executive Clinical Coordinator at Preventive Measures Foundation, shared her perspective, stating, "Empathy and mental well-being are key to successful reentry. Through our Reentry Simulation Program, we aim to foster understanding and compassion among participants."
The Preventive Measures Foundation Reentry Simulation Program offers participants an immersive experience, providing insights into the challenges faced by returning individuals. The event will include a discussion on the complexities of the criminal justice system and the critical role of mental well-being in the reentry journey. This initiative invites participants, community leaders, and organizations to join in the conversation and collectively work towards creating a more compassionate and supportive society.
