Pathways provides “a viable alternative to straight incarceration for defendants with serious mental health disorders”. Since 2006, the Pathways Mental Health Court Program has enhanced partnership among San Mateo County Courts, Probation, District Attorney, Private Defenders, Sheriff’s Office, Correctional Health, Behavioral Health and Recovery Services, and community providers. For adults living in SMC with serious mental illness, Pathways increases support and tailors supervision to promote treatment and limit incarceration.
