Mental Health Court Guidelines (pdf)
The Marin County, CA Mental Health Court guidelines were created in 2004 to guide the mental health court process. The mission of a mental health court is to preserve community safety, reduce recidivism and encourage mentally ill offenders to build more successful lives for themselves through the application of well-informed judicial supervision. The guidelines are provided to assist other communities with the establishment of similar court models.
