Promising Strategies for Tribal Healing to Wellness Courts Part 1: Peer-to-Peer Learning through Mentor Courts

April 18 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

The Tribal Law and Policy Institute’s Mentor Court Program was conceived to address a critical gap in the provision of Tribal specific technical assistance by developing and implementing a Tribal specific Mentor Court Program. While Federal and State mentor court programs offer valuable insights, they often lack focus on Tribal-specific issues such as jurisdictional complexities, limited access to resources, heightened rates of substance abuse, co-occurring disorders, cultural values, and historical trauma. Furthermore, the unique sovereign status of Tribal nations, each with its own customs, laws, and cultural needs, necessitates tailored approaches to the development and sustainability of Healing to Wellness programs.

The Tribal Law and Policy Institute (TLPI), with funding from the Department of Justice (DOJ), organized the development, implementation, and facilitation of the Mentor Court Program. Join us for Part One of the webinar series with a panel of these founding Mentor Tribal Healing to Wellness Courts presenting an overview of their programs, innovative features, and opportunities for the future.
