At our centers, probationers find staff experienced in serving the justice community.
Each center has a Terros Health nurse practitioner and a registered nurse case manager who are specially trained in working with the probation population, along with two counselors, a peer community health worker and a project manager. Our peer community health workers are individuals with lived experience and offer a unique understanding, perspective, and support.
Individuals undergo a comprehensive physical and mental health examination that includes BMI, heart function, diabetes, anxiety and depression screenings. Results from the screenings, along with an evaluation of the individual’s social determinants of health, are used to help develop a customized treatment plan.
In addition to health care, the care team works to identify resources to assist in day-to-day necessities from obtaining identification to locating food and housing.
Terros Health has a long history of serving the probation population, but this program makes health care more accessible to probationers, according to Peggy Chase, the organization’s president and CEO. “We want probationers to feel welcome and know that their health and well-being are valued,” she said. “This program offers coordination of care under one roof, and the opportunity to meet probationers’ physical and mental health needs at one time, giving them a new path to succeed.”
The justice clinics are funded by a five-year grant from the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System’s Targeted Investments Program. AHCCCS established the program in 2017 to incentivize eligible providers that meet certain benchmarks for integrating and coordinating physical and behavioral health care for Medicaid beneficiaries.
