Mental Health Court

Knox County Juvenile Health Court began in January 2016. The program serves juveniles who reside in Knox County and are charged with misdemeanors and/or felonies, and who have severe and presistent mental illnesses that are contributing factors in their law-breaking behavior and juvenile court involvement. Further, a court-monitored treatement and other services would enhance their ability to become productive and law-abiding citizens. The Mission of the Knox County Juvenile Mental Health Court is to help prepare Knox County Juveniles to lead healthy, responsible and law-abiding lives by assisting them in stabilization and coping appropriately with mental illness. The goal of the program is to reduce recidivism among individuals with severe and persistent mental health issues in the Knox County Juvenile Court system, reduce participants' detainment time by providing a specialized program for mental health clients, and increase the number of successful terminations from Knox County Juvenile Probation.
