Mental Health Court 

Courts have teamed up with mental health providers in an effort to provide treatment for those with chronic mental illness (in lieu of incarceration) from re-offending repeatedly. The goal of the Mental Health Court is to break that cycle, based on the concept that recovery is important and obtainable. The goal is to get this targeted population - mostly sufferers of bi-polar disorder and schizophrenia - psychiatrically stable, compliant with their own treatment goals, and then to obtain stable housing or supportive living arrangements to facilitate remediation of the psychiatric symptoms and reduce recidivism.
