The Arizona Superior Court Mental Health Court was founded in July 2004 to better meet the needs of persons with a serious mental illness who are also charged with felonies. Mental Health Court maintains a caseload of up to 100 defendants being served by the collaborative efforts of criminal justice, behavioral health and law enforcement professionals. This is a non-diversionary program that takes place once a defendant is placed on probation. Compliance hearings are held to measure progress. Positive progress will result in fewer meetings and less restrictions.
