Late-Stage Intervention: A Mental Health Court for Probation Failures

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



Abstract:

Traditionally, diversion programs have focused their interventions of disordered offenders early in their interactions with the criminal justice system. Most first- and second-generation mental health courts (MHCs) use this front-end approach. In stark contrast, ATLAS initiated a back-end MHC as an intervention for mentally disordered felony probationers at the brink of revocation and incarceration. ATLAS offers intensive supervision with an integrated support team of both court-based and community-based personnel. Successful participants markedly reduced recidivism (66.7%) as compared to a match sample. Back-end interventions may supplement other MHC programs in reducing the criminalization and incarceration of mentally disordered offenders.
