This handbook is designed for anyone concerned about a person with mental illness who is involved in the New York City criminal justice system. This handbook should not need to exist, because it should be very unusual for a person with mental illness to encounter the criminal justice system. Very often when mental health consumers get in trouble with the law, it is a direct result of psychiatric symptoms. When this happens, the response should be a mental health response (referral to crisis services, outreach, or hospitalization, for example), rather than a criminal justice response (filing charges, arrest, etc.).
