Mental Health Courts Collaborative

Mental Health Courts Collaborative


Most counties with a population of 200,000 or more are required to have a MHC, yet many counties of this size do not.


Judges who intend to start a MHC or whose MHC is less than a year old. 


A pilot group of judges who meet monthly on Zoom to learn from mentor judges about starting a MHC, overcoming common obstacles, avoiding legal pitfalls, and serving more people with mental illness who are justice-involved. The pilot group will then become mentors for the next group.


January 5, February 2, and March 1 over Zoom; in person at TASC Conference in March. Check-ins on Zoom at 6 months and 12 months (Oct. 2024, April 2025).

Next Step: 

Fill out an application and join us at the MHC Collaborative Coffee at the 2023 JCMH Summit on October 19.
