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 Court, pursuant to Florida Statute 394.47892. The defendant must have a severe persistent mental illness, must have some correlation between the offense and the diagnosis; and voluntarily agree to enter the program and participate in mental health treatment. Once accepted, the defendant and mental health professionals develop a Court Supervision Plan that must be approved. Assistance and treatment is coordinated throughout the program and progress toward goals is monitored closely. A participant must attend regular court appearances and must meet conditions of probation when applicable
