The authors examined a recent pilot of Mental Health Courts in Stratford and Brighton, to explore service-user views of arrangements for offenders with mental health needs who are sentenced differently ie with a MHTR. The interviews reveal ways in which tailored provision that meets the complex needs of the offenders could augment the legitimacy of the professional role with the Court sentence. This research investigates emerging ideas that could inform developments within the practice.
