MISSION STATEMENT:

The Mission of the Cheshire County Behavioral Health Court is to provide an effective and meaningful alternative to the traditional criminal justice system for individuals with a substance use disorder and/or mental illness.

GOAL:

Our goal is to promote prompt intervention, education, treatment and recovery in order to improve the quality of the individual’s life, while reducing recidivism and improving community safety.

ABOUT:

The Cheshire County Behavioral Health Court (CCBHC) is composed of two  programs:

The Alternative Sentencing Program (ASP) was established in 2001 and was the first problem solving court program in New Hampshire. ASP works with individuals that have been diagnosed with a substance use disorder and have been charged with a criminal offense.

The Mental Health Court provides an alternative to the traditional court system by emphasizing a problem-solving model and connecting individuals  diagnosed with a mental health disorder and/or substance use disorder to a variety of rehabilitative services and support networks.
