Forensic Mental Health Services


The Harris Center provides effective assessment and treatment in the community and in supervised settings for clients who are involved in the criminal justice system.

Our Forensic Services team provides services to meet the needs of children, adolescents and adults with criminal justice involvement. This is accomplished by focusing on the effective assessment, treatment and management of our consumers’ mental health needs both in the community and secure settings.


Through a contract, The Harris Center provides mental health services to inmates in the Harris County Jail. In addition, The Harris Center works in partnership with local and state criminal justice agencies to provide services to those individuals who are on probation or parole and in need of mental health treatment.
