Mental Health Juvenile Justice
The Mental Health/Juvenile Justice Initiative (MHJJI) facilitates the identification, screening, referral, and case monitoring of juveniles in detention who are identified as having serious emotional disturbance. The initiative is aimed at strengthening the linkages among the courts, probation, detention, schools, health care, mental health, and other community-based services. They are referred through the probation offices within Jefferson and Marion Counties. The goal is to address whatever issues exist so that they will have no further contact with juvenile justice.
