The mission of the First Judicial District Adult Mental Health Court (AMHC) promotes public safety by holding justice-involved individuals with serious and persistent mental illnesses accountable for their behavior while providing treatment and support through a team-based approach and frequent judicial monitoring. We recognize every participant as an individual who must be treated with respect and dignity to promote positive and productive life changes. We strive to identify and treat mental health and/or substance abuse issues that contribute to criminal justice involvement by coordinating and collaborating with community-based services and criminal justice agencies.
