Abstract:

To reduce unnecessary criminalization of persons with mental disorders, many communities have created mental health courts (MHCs). However, little research has evaluated whether or why MHCs reduce the risk of recidivism. We compared the occurrence of new charges for 67 persons with schizophrenia who entered a MHC with 86 similar individuals who were booked into jail. Participation in MHC was associated with increased treatment utilization and lower risk of re-arrest. However, multiple regression analyses suggested that simply increasing treatment utilization was not sufficient to account for the reduced recidivism. Future research is needed on what about MHCs reduces recidivism.
