Mental Health Treatment Requirement (MHTR) Evaluation – Health Outcomes (Part 1)

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned Report


The proportion of Community Sentences Treatment Requirements (CSTRs), especially Mental Health Treatment Requirements (MHTRs), as part of Community Orders has been very low. This coupled with significant mental health needs of offenders alongside rising concerns about the effectiveness of short-term sentences establishes the importance of offering a positive alternative to address underlying needs. There is limited evidence that demonstrates the effectiveness of MHTRs at improving health outcomes to reduce likelihood of reoffending.
This Policy Brief explores health outcomes for individuals who complete a mental health intervention as part of a MHTR. It summarises health outcomes and measured change using a range of psychometric measures.
