Specialty Courts


Mental Health Courts partner key criminal justice stakeholders with practitioners in the mental health system to provide judicial supervision over the delivery of community-based treatment to people who have severe mental illness and are involved in the justice system. Mental Health Courts use specialized screening and assessments to identify and divert individuals from incarceration and support compliance with community supervision and treatment. Similar to the Adult Drug Court model, a team of court staff and mental health professionals work together to develop treatment plans, deliver services, and supervise participants in the community.
