Live Webinar: TX Guardianship Manual Chapter 16, Mental Health and Involuntary Commitment

June 11 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm CDT

Description: Guardians and Attorneys practicing in mental health should be aware of the most common forms of mental illness that present in patients facing involuntary commitment. An explanation of such common forms will be discussed during this presentation. A question facing the families of those experiencing a mental-health crisis is how to get help for their loved ones. Persons receiving treatment for a mental-health crisis will receive it either voluntarily or involuntarily. The presenter will explain how proposed patients enter the mental-health system involuntarily, either with or without a mental-health warrant. Guardians and Attorneys representing clients facing inpatient commitment for mental-health services are well advised to (1) develop a basic understanding of common psychiatric conditions and the treatments available for such conditions, (2) review the laws associated with the commitment process and understand the full scope of rights belonging to proposed patients, (3) understand the impact of involuntary commitment, and (4) recognize the options available to their clients and the consequences associated with each option.
