Halls of Hope is an intensive and
comprehensive Mental Health Court
designed as an alternative to incarceration.
Halls of Hope strives to hold its participants accountable for their behavior by utilizing a collaborative community approach in order to provide them with a high quality of care.
The Program was created by the court, mental health providers, prosecutors, defense attorneys, family members and community stakeholders to provide sentencing alternatives to individuals with a mental illness who are involved in criminal matters.
The fundamental principle of the Program is that individuals who engage in criminal behavior due to their mental illness should undergo appropriate treatment to modify their behavior and achieve recovery. Incarceration alone has proven to be ineffective.
Halls of Hope is administered through the Lebanon NH District Court, with mental health services provided by West Central Behavioral Health.
