Mental Health Courts: A Redefinition of Tasks and Goals

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Mental health courts (MHCs) have grown tremendously in number and popularity over the past decade. Their widespread use suggests that they should be more closely examined by researchers and practitioners alike. The current project briefly reviews the central elements of mental health courts and evidence supporting their efficacy. In addition, we examine the major criticisms of mental health courts. In response, the authors propose a redefinition of the purpose of mental health courts and suggest future directions for mental health courts and the professionals involved.
