LAPEER COUNTY- A new and highly innovative agreement has been worked out in Lapeer County between the Courts, Prosecutor’s Office, Community Mental Health, Probation Office and the Sheriff’s Department.
This agreement has created a Mental Court and Mental health Diversion Program for all of Lapeer County.
The mission is to improve public safety and reduce recidivism by improving mental health through coordinating a system of care through the collaboration of local resources for defendants who are severely mentally ill and or developmentally disabled.
Please take the time to read the full pamphlet so you can be informed on what the goals and requirements of this program are. They are excited in having something unique to give at a level of care and support to those who qualify which in return, benefits the entire community.
