There are a growing number of incarcerated people in Texas, county jails who are declared incompetent to stand trial and awaiting inpatient competency restoration services. Eliminate the Wait calls on behavioral health and justice system leaders to strategize locally to reduce wait times and improve outcomes.

The Eliminate the Wait Toolkit

The Eliminate Wait Toolkit outlines a set of strategies for behavioral health and justice professionals to help reduce the wait for inpatient competency restoration services in Texas.

Eliminate the Wait Regional Forums

Eliminate the Wait Regional Forums bring together county forensic teams representing justice and behavioral health professionals to discuss national and state best practices on the competence to stand trial process, review state and regional waitlist trends, engage in training sessions, and develop county action plans.
