Cobb County CSB's Listen and Learn with Smyrna Police and Smyrna Fire

The youth at Cobb County CSB's George W. Hartmann Center, a therapeutic, structured residential treatment program for adolescents who have substance use challenges and/or co-occurring mental health disorders, were treated to a listen-and-learn question and answer event with Smyrna Police and Smyrna Fire last month. In an interactive format, the youth were able to ask candid questions and learn more about public safety jobs and the steps needed to have a career in public safety.

On April 29, 2021, Cobb County Community Services Board’s (CCCSB) celebrated the graduation of three participants in the Mental Health Court as it said goodbye to the Court’s judge.

Mental Health Court is one of the Accountability Courts offered in Cobb Superior Court and began under the direction of Honorable Judge Mary Staley Clark in April of 2013. The Mental Health Court is an approximately 24-month program, providing therapeutic services through the CCCSB Specialty Services Department, led by Lauren Baird, and assisting in long-term stability for an individual. The goal of the court is for the criminal justice system to work by providing help and resources to reduce the cost associated with incarceration and to set an individual on a path to achieving his or her desired quality of life.

April was Judge Staley Clark’s final graduation as the presiding judge of this court, as she is taking over Cobb County Drug Treatment Court. On behalf of the entire CCCSB staff, we wish Judge Staley-Clark well and appreciate her years of service and partnership with our agency. We are thrilled to have the Honorable Judge Ann B. Harris as our presiding Mental Health Court judge starting in May.
