Mental Health Court Performance Measures

Mental Health Court Performance Measures

MHCPM is a set of 14 performance measures that offers court managers and administrators a tool to monitor the performance of mental health courts.  These measures were designed by the NCSC with guidance from national experts and field tested by four courts across the country.  The measures are designed to be used as a management tool, to monitor program performance, and to demonstrate accountability to funding agencies, court leaders, external partners, and the public.
