  The Misdemeanor Mental Health Court (MMHC), formerly the Diversion Treatment Court, is the longest running mental health court of its kind in Georgia. Established in 2001 as a pre-plea diversion program, the MMHC is currently a post-plea state certified accountability court. In the MMHC program, defendants agree to participate in a treatment program designed to meet their individual needs. The treatment plan is developed by the court's social worker, reviewed and discussed with the team and approved by the judge.
