The Platte County Prosecutor’s Office provides information connecting jurors with free mental health services after deliberating in difficult cases. In partnership with a local mental health provider, Platte County prosecutors developed a card that is handed out to jurors at the conclusion of a trial.

The card directs jurors directly to a local mental health provider in order to access care related to trial trauma.
