OCHN collaborates with the Oakland County Prosecutor’s Office and the 6th Circuit Court, on behalf of individuals with mental health, substance use, and co-occurring disorders who are facing charges, to provide opportunity for diversion into treatment rather than incarceration. Mental health and substance use resources are provided through an on-site Liaison embedded into the Prosecutor's Office by screening, linking, and referring children / adults to service providers. In addition, early diversion opportunities for youth are explored.
