Mental Health Courts

Mental Health Courts require collaboration and consideration from practitioners in both the criminal justice and mental health fields. Mental Health Courts typically involve judges, prosecutors, defense attorneys, and other court personnel. The courts generally deal with nonviolent offenders who have been diagnosed with a mental illness or co-occurring mental health and substance abuse disorders. The goal of Mental Health Courts is to decrease the frequency of clients' contacts with the criminal justice system by providing courts with resources to improve clients' social functioning and link them to employment, housing, treatment, and support services.

For more information on Mental Health Courts, please contact Jackie Rendo at (801) 869-2872.
