Five men and five women are free to pursue mentally healthy and crime-free lives, thanks to the help they received through the Mansfield Municipal Mental Health Court.

They graduated Wednesday, and were presented diplomas, after completing an intense supervision program that included home visits, curfew checks, drug and alcohol testing, and regular meetings with either Judge Jerry Ault or Judge Frank Ardis.

Mansfield Municipal Mental Health Court was created in 2004, the third in Ohio.

It coordinates court supervision services with treatment providers to divert misdemeanor offenders with severe mental illness from repeated encounters with law enforcement and jail time.
