*In case of emergency: If you or someone you know is experiencing a mental health crisis, call 911 or an emergency crisis center right away.
If you are on probation and have mental health concerns, you might be eligible for specialized supervision. A specially trained probation officer will supervise you, track your progress, and help you find the services you need. Ask your probation officer if you qualify.
Mental health supervision provides:
- Smaller caseloads, more individualized attention, and more field visits;
- Focus on treatment and social services; and
- Coordination with treatment providers and families to build a strong support network.
Selection process for the adult mental health supervision caseload
- You can speak to your probation officer if you think you will be more successful on probation with a specialized probation officer who understands mental health concerns. Also, your probation officer might speak with you if he or she thinks you will benefit from extra probation support.
