Behavioral Health Court was recently chosen as a recipient of the COMIO (Council on Mentally Ill Offenders) Best Practices Award.

COMIO is comprised of eleven members, representing the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, the California Department of Mental Health and members of law enforcement, the legislature and the courts. Since 2001, its charge has been to "investigate and promote cost-effective approaches to meeting the long-term needs of adults and juveniles with mental disorders who are likely to become offenders or who have a history of offending."

Behavioral Health Court will be recognized at an awards ceremony on March 19th, 2008.
