Mental Health Juvenile Justice
The Mental Health/Juvenile Justice (MHJJ) facilitates the identification, screening, referral, and case monitoring of youth involved with, or at risk of becoming involved with, the juvenile justice system who have mental health issues.
The initiative is aimed at strengthening the linkages among the courts, probation, detention, schools, health care, mental health, and other community-based services. Participants are referred through community partners, including the probation offices within Jefferson, Marion, Franklin, and Williamson counties.
