Fulton Accountability Courts Mark National Observance


May is National Accountability Court Month and the Fulton County Drug and Mental Health Courts are hosting events to highlight the importance of these courts to public safety.

The theme for the month, “All Rise: Putting Drug Court Within Reach of Every Person in Need” recognizes the need to establish accountability courts to address the problems of each of the 1.2 million Americans who appear before the courts each year with serious substance abuse and mental health issues.

Simply put, research has shown that accountability courts work. They are effective alternatives to repeated offenses by persons with addictions and mental illness and produce citizens who pay taxes, support their families and live drug-free lives.

Fulton's Drug and Mental Health Courts invite your coverage of the following events:

Friday, May 21

Fulton County Accountability Courts Picnic
Welcome All Park
College Park, GA

Wednesday, May 26

Fulton County Accountability Courts Family Day
Hope Hall
