The Juvenile Court Clinic Program (JCCP), originally established in 1993, provides mental health evaluation, consultation, and liaison services to the Juvenile Courts of Barnstable, Plymouth, Bristol, Dukes, and Nantucket counties through contracts with the Massachusetts Trial Court Juvenile Court Department and the Department of Mental Health's Forensic Services Division.
Fall River, MA 02720
Evaluations sometimes address specific forensic issues including competency to stand trial or to participate in a legal proceeding, criminal responsibility, and/or aid in sentencing. Court clinic services also include case consultation, expert testimony, crisis intervention, treatment planning, and referral for further services. The JCCP maintains a familiarity with the resources currently available within the communities and regions served by these courts and works proactively with local providers to divert juveniles from unnecessary court involvement.
