    Sponsored by:

    The Texas Judicial Academy is a partnership between the Texas Association of Counties and the Texas Tech University School of Law.


    According to a recent report from the Texas Judicial Council, approximately 1 million Texans experience serious mental illness in a given year. Also reported, up to 24 percent of Texas inmates have mental health needs. Throughout the state, the responsibility to effectively deal with a rising mental health crisis, as well as shoulder its financial burden, often falls to the court system.

    Attendees, specifically judiciary and sheriffs, will learn about the nature of mental illnesses in the courts, how to create important partnerships and will hear a number of success stories that could be emulated in other areas.
