    Overview

    The Mental Health Court Diversion Program is a post-booking, pre-trial diversion program for mentally impaired offenders. The program offers eligible offenders a treatment option that is judicially supervised. It is designed to divert mentally impaired offenders out of the traditional criminal justice process and into appropriate rehabilitative alternatives. Once the offender has been screened and approved for participation in the program, he/she will promptly begin a treatment regimen that is specific to his/hers needs.

    Mission

    The mission of the Mental Health Court Diversion Program is to identify mentally impaired offenders, to expedite them through the criminal justice system and to help them achieve mental stability and non-criminal behavior.
