Requested Agenda Title:
Behavioral Health Services Advisory Council Reappointment:

Kele Griffone, Criminal Justice Services Director

Requested Agenda Item Description: The Behavioral Health Services Advisory Council (BHSAC) is seeking reappointment for current council member, Kele Griffone. Kele's second appointed term expired on March 31, 2021, and she is currently eligible for one additional 1-year term. A motion was made during the last BHSAC meeting held April 7, 2021, to submit this request to the Mayor and County Council for review and consideration for reappointment. The BHSAC members voted in unanimous support of the motion to request reappointment of Kele Griffone with a final 1-year term.

Kele Griffone is the Division Director of Salt Lake County Criminal Justice Services (CJS). Her current position and mission of alternatives to incarceration for those involved in the criminal justice system gives her a unique perspective of what clients need to be successful. CJS's focus on behavior change and working with individuals to successfully navigate all aspects of the criminal justice system helps with recidivism. Kele is able to share data and criminal justice perspectives that help identify needs, enhance current services, and identify barriers for success for clients involved in the criminal justice and behavioral health systems. Kele Griffone's expertise and experience with the criminal justice and behavior health population is invaluable to the work and initiatives of the BHSAC and helps to ensure the unique needs of these populations are considered as behavioral health strategies are developed and resources are identified.
