Mental Health Court: For individuals charged with crimes who suffer from significant mental health issues mental health court may be an option for them. This court requires the individual to plea guilty to the offense(s) charged. The individual must then follow the course of treatment prescribed by the court. The great thing about mental health court is that if the person completes the course of treatment then all charges are DISMISSED. Usually this program takes anywhere from 18 months to two years depending on the person’s ability to finish the program. In addition to counseling and psychiatric assessments provided by the mental health court team, the individual must make regular appearances in front of the Judge and show progress in their course of treatment.
