Developed in response to the needs of a population of juvenile offenders with a sustained mental health diagnosis who do not respond well to traditional rehabilitation programs and, therefore, repeatedly cycle through custodial facilities or group homes. Additionally, these youth often display significant substance abuse issues. The Insights Court Team uses a multi-disciplinary approach comprised of Ventura County Superior Court, Ventura County Probation Department, District Attorney’s Office, Public Defender’s Office, Ventura County Behavioural Health, and the Ventura County Office of Education to provide intensive case management services. Eligibility requirements include but are not limited to youth who have a significant mental health diagnosis resulting in impaired functioning, law enforcement contact, and/or delinquent conduct. By focusing on the special needs of this target population, Insights Court team members collaboratively develop individualized case plans with the youth and establish support systems in the community to prevent out-of-home placements and hospitalizations.
