    Community Forensic Aftercare Program (CFAP)

    CFAP was established in 1982 by the Department of Mental Health and Hygiene to enhance the Department’s capacity to plan for the conditional release of individuals found Not Criminally Responsible and to monitor these individuals’ compliance with conditional release orders.  In addition, CFAP monitors selected individuals found to be incompetent to stand trial and who are released on pretrial conditions of release. 

    CFAP is currently responsible for monitoring individuals on signed orders of conditional release in both District and Circuit court in every county in the state of Maryland.  CFAP has been responsible for monitoring approximately 3000 cases since 1982.  Currently CFAP manages an active caseload of between 700 and 800 cases. 

    CFAP is responsible for reviewing drafts of proposed conditional release orders to assess their suitability for monitoring and to insure that all necessary conditions are included in the draft order. CFAP also informs and educates community providers about the signed orders of conditional release for those individuals they have accepted into their programs. CFAP is responsible for reporting to the courts any issues of noncompliance with the conditions of release. CFAP is also able to work with community providers to enhance treatment plans to address the clinical needs of individuals in placed in the community on signed orders of conditional release.

    CFAP provides periodic training for its partners within and outside of MDH, including
    • Hospital personnel who prepare committed patients for release
    • Forensic evaluators who may be preparing orders of release
    • Community providers who manage cases in the community
    • Judiciary
    • Attorneys
