Presented by:  Linda Garrett, Esq., Garrett Law                                                                                                                                   The California Legislature, together with various stakeholder groups and Governor Newsom, is now working on proposed legislation that, if passed and signed into law, will profoundly impact how emergency psychiatric care and involuntary mental health services are provided in our communities.  We will discuss four bills that are now being considered:  

    • AB 2275:  would clarify the start time of the 72-hour clock, increase due process rights for those held under "serial holds," and increase data collection responsibilities for county mental health departments, among other things; 
    • AB 2020: would redefine "grave disability" (and potentially increase the number of individuals "held" pursuant to WIC §5150 et seq.) to include those who lack capacity to accept recommended and necessary medical and mental health treatment; and,
    • AB 2830/SB 1338: two bills that would support Governor Newsom's proposed CARE Court project whereby those suffering from schizophrenia and related psychotic disorders could receive court-ordered mental health treatment and medications as well as other related services such as housing and care planning.
