Suburban Municipal Court Liaison (CARES Program)
Reduce symptoms of psychiatric illness and recidivism
Support recovery and reduce involvement in criminal activity in a community setting
Improve coping skills and foster community integration
The Suburban Municipal Court Liaison’s role is to meet with clients who are arrested by an Eastside Municipality on a misdemeanor level offense. The Liaison will prepare a detailed screening/assessment of a client’s mental state and need for medication and will then communicate with the referring Municipal Court and/or Probation Department, and/or City Workhouse/House of Corrections staff to facilitate mental health and substance use disorder (SUD) treatment needs. The Liaison provides recommendations back to the Courts System for case disposition.
Clients are provided mental health treatment and linked to community services in their communities that support recovery and reduce their involvement in criminal activity. Rehabilitation and environmental support activities reduce the symptoms of psychiatric illness, build resilience and improve their quality of life and integration into the community.
