Mental Health Court: Justice Without Jail

Why do so many people who end up in jail also suffer from a mental illness?  Why do many of the same people get sent to jail repeatedly instead of getting the support and help they need? 

A mental health court will offer help and support to so many in our community.  It is an effective alternative to incarceration. Please join us on Sunday, October 7 from 2 to 3:30 pm at The Space at Greenstar for a discussion of Mental Health Court: Justice Without Jail.

Panelist include:

  • Ithaca City Court Judge Scott Miller
  • a recent Auburn Mental Health Court Graduate
  • a representative of Tompkins County Mental Health Services
  • Captain Ray Bunce of  Tompkins County Sheriff’s Office
  • a representative of Alliance of Families for Justice
