Community, Mental Health, and Other Resources
Very often criminal charges are related to, or the result of, challenges in one’s life, including mental health struggles, drug addiction, or strife at home. It is common for people to need extra help or services to address their problems. This can benefit them in the criminal legal process in multiple ways. For example, if you have unaddressed anger, you may have gotten in trouble for assault or threats. Getting some therapy for any of your own unresolved issues can help improve the results of your case.
Below you’ll find a list of resources compiled by Catherine over the years. This is by no means an exhaustive list of programs available in the metro area or greater Minnesota, but it’s a place to start. Some of these places or programs have provided services for previous clients. Some were recommended by other attorneys or colleagues in the criminal legal process. Please take advantage of these services if they can provide you with needed help.
