SUMMIT COUNTY COURT OF COMMON PLEAS - PROBATE DIVISION
JUDGE ELINORE MARSH STORMER

New Day Court

Summit County has long used the outpatient commitment process to provide treatment in the community to citizens suffering from severe mental illness.  The specialized program offered through the New Day Court gives those who participate the tools to take an active role in their recovery to avoid repeat hospitalizations.  The New Day Court program offers compassionate case management supported by the Court and all of the service providers involved in the participant’s treatment plan.

The Summit County Probate Court’s New Day Court was developed to assist the severely mentally ill on outpatient commitment. Summit County’s New Day Court is the first of its kind in the State of Ohio.
