Minnesota Senator Al Franken, on Rochester's Good Morning a few weeks back mentioned how he would like to see more "Mental Health Courts" in the state, along the lines of the Drug Courts we have now.

We brought up the subject this morning (Wednesday) with Olmsted County Attorney Mark Ostrem.  He would like to see it too, in fact he said Judge Kevin Lund wanted a Mental Health Court before Drug Courts became a reality.

But, according to Ostrem it's at least a few years down the road..

The County Attorney is a regular monthly guest with Rich Peterson and Kim David on Rochester's Good Morning on 1340 KROC AM.
