Abstract / Description of output

Court diversion schemes were established to ensure that people with mental illness who are brought before the courts obtain appropriate care from health and social services.1 In July 1993 a psychiatric court liaison scheme, one of about 300 in England and Wales, was established at Tottenham Magistrates' Court in north London to cover two boroughs, or one health authority. We evaluated the outcome for all defendants attending the scheme over 18 months.
