Statewide Mental Health Court Outcome Evaluation: Aggregate Report

In 2008, the Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) and the State Court Administrative Office (SCAO) developed the Michigan Mental Health Court Grant Program as a mechanism to jointly fund a statewide mental health court pilot program during fiscal year 2009. In 2011, MDCH contracted an external evaluation of the pilot program encompassing eight mental health courts. This evaluation encompasses the three-year pilot period of January 2009 to December 2011 and relies on multiple sources of data to assess the processes and outcomes of each court.
