Armor’s comprehensive approach to patient care, including mental health and psychiatric related care, is reflected in our use of the term “Behavioral Health.” We accept our responsibility to address all potentially problematic behavior, not just those limited by the narrow definition of mental illness. This broad mission helps to maintain a safe and stable environment for our patients and all correctional facility staff.

Four key initiatives summarize our program goals:

- Organization of specialized re-entry initiatives, including community services and a referral network of local resources
We have implemented behavioral health programs that include a wide range of organizational models. We work closely with our clients to match our programs to available resources, including community agencies.
