MENTAL HEALTH COURT PROGRAM:

The Mental Health Court Program is a voluntary alternative to the traditional court system. A defendant may be referred by his or her attorney, but final acceptance is determined by the State Attorney's Office. The defendant must have a qualifying Axis One diagnosis, must have some correlation between the offense and the diagnosis and agree voluntary to enter the program and participate in mental health treatment. Once accepted, the defendant and mental health professionals develop an intervention plan that must be approved by the court. Assistance and treatment is coordinated throughout the plan and progress toward goals is monitored closely. A defendant must attend regular court appearances and must meet conditions of probation when applicable.
