The purpose of this Unit is to supervise individuals diagnosed with a severe mental illness that hinders their ability to function on a daily basis. Collaborative efforts have continued to be maintained with the Summit County Jail Behavioral Health Unit, C.I.T., and the mental health agencies in the community, to meet the needs of this specialized population with the help of the Alcohol, Drug and Mental Health Board of Summit County.
The Mental Health Unit Probation Officers caseloads are determined by the level of functioning of the individual. This results in a smaller caseload for the officers for those requiring more intense monitoring.
