Abstract

The Mental Health Treatment Requirement (MHTR) has unfulfilled potential to offer offenders with mental health problems the option of a sentence in the community which will enable them to engage with appropriate treatment and support. This briefing from the Criminal Justice Alliance and Centre for Mental Health examines the barriers that prevent the further uptake of the MHTR and how they can be overcome.
