GAINS Center Seeking Input From Juvenile Mental Health Courts

The National Center for Mental Health and Juvenile Justice is seeking assistance in identifying juvenile mental health courts across the country.

Over the last few years, there has been a significant growth in the development of mental health courts for juveniles. In 2005, the National Center for Mental Health and Juvenile Justice, with support from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, undertook a project designed to identify existing juvenile mental health courts and collect information on funding, organization and administration, court processes, services, and target populations of these courts. Information on the results of this effort can be found at NCMHJJ.

The Center is seeking to update its inventory of juvenile mental health courts information. If you currently operate a juvenile mental health court, or are aware of any juvenile mental health courts in your area, please take a minute to provide us with some basic information about the program using the following link:

Thank You.

I'm researching the same topic for Children At Risk in Houston. Did you get any feedback?

Not certain you received my email but you will want to go to this website and ask your question there: . This entry was merely a copy paste of an email I received from the GAINS center.
