MassHealth Behavioral Health Supports for Justice Involved Individuals (BH-JI)

BH-JI helps people leaving jail or prison, people who have recently left jail or prison, people on parole, and people on probation to connect with behavioral health services and social supports in the community.

BH-JI is a partnership between the Massachusetts Executive Office of Health and Human Services (EOHHS) and the Massachusetts Executive Office of the Trial Court (Trial Court). BH-JI helps people who are “justice-involved,” including:

• people leaving jail or prison within six months,
• people who have recently left jail or prison within a year,
• people on parole, and
• people on probation

to connect with behavioral health services and social supports in the community.

BH-JI began in 2019 in Middlesex and Worcester counties with Advocates, Inc and Open Sky Community Services and launched statewide on February 1, 2022.
