Preventing crime and promoting rights for Indigenous young people with cognitive disabilities and mental health issues

16 Dec 2008
Description

This report provides an investigation of early intervention and diversionary practices aimed at preventing offending behaviour in Indigenous young people with a cognitive disability and/or a mental health problem. It builds on the Australian Human Rights Commission's previous report, 'Indigenous young people with cognitive disabilities and the Australian juvenile justice system'. Specifically, it examines what is available for these young people, identifies systemic service delivery gaps and points to promising interventions that have the capacity to prevent offending behaviour.
