Clients with severe persistent mental illness and/or substance abuse disorders sometimes become involved with the legal system. The courts are a large, confusing and anxiety inducing system. Your clients may have many questions…“What happens at arraignment?” “What are bail conditions?” “How do I get my stuff if I have a no contact order against me?” “Can I get my record expunged?" Come learn about the myriad of proceedings your clients may face and how best to help them cope.
