Trevor Whitehead


Trevor’s passion for research related to the intersections of addiction, mental health, and criminal justice developed during his undergraduate studies at Central Michigan University, where he introduced data-driven systems for program evaluation and development at an on-campus addiction recovery center. After returning to Detroit with his BSW, he earned his MSW from Wayne State University, where he researched co-responder programs and led efforts to evaluate intimate partner violence prevention programs while working at HAVEN of Oakland County. His professional background focuses largely on program evaluation and development; data integration, management and analysis; and report generation. Above all, Trevor is most passionate about research that informs community systems change and improves outcomes for those in the criminal justice system.


Trevor assists in the entry, coding, cleaning, conditioning, and analysis of multiple data sets from jails, courts, and state-level agencies. In addition, he provides technical assistance focused on the integration of criminal justice and behavioral health data to equip local communities with the ability to track jail diversion outcomes.
