Judges’ Guide to Juvenile Mental Health Jargon

The Judges’ Guide to Mental Health Jargon is intended to serve as a resource for judges who hear juvenile cases and who are involved in juvenile justice/mental health initiatives in their communities. Developed by Thomas Grisso, Ph.D., and Kamlyn Haynes, M.D., of the University of Massachusetts Medical School. Originally printed in 2007, this guide now incorporates changes prompted by the release of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5).
