Manhattan Mental Health Court


Yesterday afternnoon marked the official kick-off of the Manhattan Mental Health Court with a lunchtime celebration featuring New York State Chief Judge Jonathan Lippman and Manhattan DA Cy Vance Jr. This project builds on the model that we helped to create in Brooklyn eight years ago, which is presided over by the Hon. Matthew D'Emic. While we are not directly involved in operating the Manhattan court, we did play a behind-the-scenes role, providing technical assistance and support to the Manhattan judge. Kudos to Carol for her work on this project.
