CACC – California Association of Collaborative Courts

Justice and Mental Health Collaboration Act

Senator Al Franken (D-Minn.) and Congressman Richard Nugent (R-Fla.) introduced the Justice and Mental Health Collaboration Act (JMHCA), a bipartisan legislation authorizing Veterans Treatment Courts and improving access to mental health services for people in the criminal justice system that need treatment.  We need YOU to reach out to your Members of Congress to support this bill!

This legislation is a great step forward in providing the necessary funding for our nation’s Veterans Treatment Courts which connects veterans suffering from substance abuse, mental illness and trauma with the treatment and care they have earned.
