The documentary film, "Definition of Insanity," features the Miami-Dade Courts' Criminal Mental Health Project (CMHP), a groundbreaking program recognized nationally and internationally as a model court for other jurisdictions worldwide. The CMHP, spearheaded by Associate Administrative Judge of the County Criminal Court, Judge Steven Leifman, helps individuals struggling with mental health and co-occuring substance use disorders by providing court-supervised treatment instead of incarceration, helping these individuals successfully reintegrate into their communities.

The film premieres on Tuesday, April 14, 2020, at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on your local PBS channel (search listings), as well as the PBS website Pbs.org and the PBS Video app.

 

From the PBS website:

The new documentary, The Definition of Insanity, explores the groundbreaking work of The Miami-Dade Criminal Mental Health Project (CMHP), an approach being heralded as a model for helping to solve the mental health crisis in America. A people-powered community-wide safety net, CMHP works through the court system to steer people with mental illness - as their legal cases hang in the balance - on a path from incarceration to recovery. Shocked by how people with mental illness were treated in Miami-Dade's jails, Judge Steven Leifman works with a team of dedicated public servants, as well as former adversaries in the criminal justice system, to help people with mental illness navigate from lives of tragedy.

Produced and directed by Gabriel London, written and produced by Charlie Sadoff, and narrated by Rob Reiner, The Definition of Insanity premieres on Tuesday, April 14, 2020, 10:00-11:00 p.m. ET.
