Few studies have compared the outcomes of services provided to veterans by Veterans Health Administration (VHA) programs with the outcomes of services provided by other community-based programs. The study reported here addressed that area of concern by comparing rates of criminal justice involvement of two groups: VHA service recipients and veterans receiving services from the Department of Mental Health (DMH) in the same state.
