Mental Health Court in El Paso

From the El Paso Times, December 10, 2007:

"A new mental health court intervention and treatment program was created today by a unanimous vote by Commissioners Court.

The new court will address mental health issues among adult criminal offenders, including counseling services, treatment, supervision and mental health assessments. The new court will seek grant funds to help fund its operation."

Bexar, Dallas, and Tarrant Counties all have some sort of mental health diversion courts.
