The Illinois Center of Excellence for Behavioral Health and Justice is a statewide entity working to equip communities to appropriately respond to the needs of persons with behavioral health disorders that are involved with the criminal justice system.

Based in Rockford and serving all Illinois counties, the Center promotes, coordinates, and provides training to communities looking to implement best practices including jail diversion programs and problem-solving courts for mentally ill and/or substance abusing offenders.

The Center is housed at the University of Illinois Rockford, with training access at other University of Illinois sites in Chicago, Peoria, Springfield, and Urbana/Champaign.
