This proposal provides support and evaluation of the planned Mental Health Court pilot program. If the evaluation is positive, consider providing the necessary services and support to expanding the Court.

Budget Range: Unknown

Status: Partially implemented. Since its first referral on 10/27/08, the court has received 58 official referrals and currently has 23 clients and 11 pending clients. Staff reported an increase in client referrals once the referral requirements were expanded; as a result, the court is considering expanding the requirements to include RST referrals.
