OUTAGAMIE COUNTY - It was an emotional day as Outagamie County honored the first graduate of its treatment court.
The program started a year ago to help those struggling with mental health issues stay out of jail.
Friday's graduate, Evelyn, spent time in prison and was battling an alcohol addiction before enrolling in the program.
"It's been amazing," she said. "I have been so blessed with the people that I've met along the way and the support that they've given me. I've never had that before in my life."
Evelyn now has a steady job and says she's looking forward to a bright future.
