CARE Court to Begin Serving Residents in Los Angeles County


State Program Launches December 1st to Support Families and Individuals Struggling with Severe Schizophrenia and Associated Psychotic Disorders

Garcia (Independent Defense Counsel Office) will announce the launch of the state-funded Community Assistance Recovery and Empowerment (CARE) program. Better known as CARE Court, this program will help eligible individuals with severe untreated schizophrenia and other associated psychotic disorders get access to treatment and services to stabilize their symptoms.
