If the police believe a person has done
something wrong, they may have to go to court.
There may be criminal proceedings; these are the steps the
police and courts take to decide if a person is guilty or not
guilty. These are some of the things that happen:

your mental disorder
- The doctor gives the court a report
- The report helps the court decide if you need treatment
- The court decides what to do about your case
