Description

Given the relative newness of the court and its potential to serve as a model for other mental health courts in Ohio, the Ohio Office of Criminal Justice Services (OCJS) conducted a case study of the court. This study focused on the structure and function of the Akron mental health court—how the court was initiated, what agencies and individuals are instrumental in the court’s day-to-day operations, how collaborations among entities were developed and how they are sustained, and how the Akron mental health court functions as a whole to serve the client. One goal of this study is to provide feedback to the Akron mental health court so that the court can more effectively meet the needs of not only the clients but also the team members working within the mental health court system. An additional goal of the study is to provide information to other courts that are considering implementing a mental health court in their own jurisdictions.
