VIDEO: Starting a Mental Health Court

Do you want to start a mental health court in your county but don't know where to begin?

In 2022, the JCMH created "The 10-Step Guide to Creating a Texas Mental Health Court Program." Now, with the help of three experts, we created an in-depth video to give you guidance on starting your own mental health court program. From understanding the concept of a mental health court to finding funding and registering the court, we walk you through the process.
