Looking beneath the surface: Courts and mental health

We often think of mental illness as an invisible disease, but its effects can clearly be seen in our courts, as Texans with these challenges find themselves in the criminal justice, juvenile justice and child welfare systems. Because people in mental health crises are more likely to encounter law enforcement than medical professionals, the courts often serve as their point of entry to access mental health services.  Texas courtrooms are filled with children being parented by the state because their parents have unmet mental health needs.  Many times, these same children return to court as they face juvenile detention, homelessness and prison.  Our veterans often return from service with life-changing PTSD and land in court, struggling with employment, housing and family.
