1 California s Protection & Advocacy System Toll-Free (800) Voluntary Services as Alternative to Involuntary Detention under LPS Act March 2010, Pub # This memo outlines often overlooked rights to end the unnecessary involuntary commitment of Californians with psychiatric disabilities in hospitals and other institutional settings. All persons subject to involuntary hospitalization have rights to evaluation for and advisement of home and community-based services to meet individual needs. State programs and services provide for a wide array of alternatives, including but not limited to voluntary programs created by the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) and Medi-Cal Specialty Mental Health Services. There are several ways to challenge the denial of these rights and obtain the services that you desire as an alternative to involuntary hospitalization. One way is to request written information from county or hospital staff about available service alternatives. Another way is to request a Medi-Cal fair hearing to obtain assistance provided by your Mental Health Plan. There are also federal compliance and discrimination complaint processes. If you would like more information about how to obtain home and community-based alternatives to involuntary detention, please call Disability Rights California at Evaluation and Offer of Voluntary Home & Community- Based Care Instead of Involuntary Hospitalization Any person who is detained for involuntary mental health treatment under the Lanterman-Petris-Short (LPS) Act has rights:

Government curtailment of liberty under federal and state constitutions is not necessary where a person is willing and able to accept appropriate services on a voluntary basis so long as the person is nondangerous and able to take care of him- or herself. Additionally, a person s ability and willingness to accept voluntary services prevents unnecessary legal expenditures associated with furthering the involuntary commitment process, which often includes appeals. 2 1 Cal.

State law provides that a psychiatric patient may not be presumed incompetent solely on the basis of his or her hospitalization. 3 As such, hospitalized individuals retain the right to give informed consent to mental health care and treatment absent a judicial determination of incompetence. 4 c. State law provides that persons subject to detention under section 5150 of the Welfare and Institutions Code are entitled to an evaluation of whether he or she can be properly served without being detained If so, he or she shall be provided evaluation, crisis intervention, or other inpatient or outpatient services on a voluntary basis. 5 d. State law provides that a person subject to 14-day detention under section 5250 of the Welfare and Institutions Code must be advised of the need for, but has not been willing or able to accept, treatment on a voluntary basis. 6 The 14-day certification notice specifically references voluntary hospitalization or referral to specified home and community-based services. 7 (See Attachment 1 Notice) e. Under section 5008(d) of the Welfare and Institutions Code, Referral is defined, in part, as informing the person of available services, making appointments on the person s behalf, discussing the person s problem with the agency or individual to which the person has been referred, appraising the outcome of referrals, and arranging for personal escort and transportation when necessary. Further, [r]eferral shall be considered complete when the agency or individual to whom the person has been referred accepts responsibility for providing the necessary services.

The Americans with Disabilities Act and Olmstead decision require provision of services in the most integrated setting and reasonable modifications in programs to ensure integration of persons with psychiatric disabilities in the community. The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that public entities such as county mental health departments have a duty to provide home and community-based services to individuals who would otherwise be in a facility when: (i) the assistance would appropriately meet the person s needs, (ii) the person prefers or does not oppose the assistance, and (iii) the assistance could be reasonably provided Provision of Home and Community-Based Services Available under State Law a. Home and Community-based services that are available under state law on a voluntary basis include: (i) Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) services will be provided to severely mentally ill children and shall be available to adults and seniors with severe illnesses 10 (See Attachment 2 for the provision of MHSA services) 8 Id U.S.C. section et seq.; Olmstead v. L.C., 527 U.S. 581, at 587 ( [P]lacement of persons with mental disabilities in community settings rather than in institutions is in order when the State s treatment professionals have determined that community placement is appropriate, the transfer from institutional care to a less restrictive setting is not opposed by the affected individual, and the placement can be reasonably accommodated, taking into account the resources available to the State and the needs of others with mental disabilities. ). 10 Cal.

8 Page 8 of 17 ATTACHMENT 2 MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES ACT PROGRAMS AND SERVICES UNDER WELFARE AND INSTITUTIONS CODE SECTIONS 5801, 5802 AND 5806 Section 5801(b) The underlying philosophy for these systems of care includes the following: (4) Seriously mentally disordered adults and older adults should have an interagency network of services with multiple points of access and be assigned to a single person or team to be responsible for all treatment, case management, and community support services. (5) The client should be fully informed and volunteer for all treatment provided, unless danger to self or others or grave disability requires temporary involuntary treatment. (6) Clients and families should directly participate in making decisions about services and resource allocations that affect their lives. (9) For the majority of adults and older adults, treatment is best provided in the client s natural setting in the community. Treatment, case management, and community support services should be designed to prevent removal from the natural environment to more restrictive and costly placements. (11) State and county government agencies each have responsibilities and fiscal liabilities for seriously emotionally disordered adults and seniors. Section 5802(a)
9 Page 9 of 17 (1) A comprehensive and coordinated system of care includes communitybased treatment,... case management, and interagency [coordination]... (2) [Services come from]... many different state and local agencies, particularly criminal justice, employment, housing, public welfare, health and mental health.

(4) System of care services which ensure culturally competent care for persons with severe mental illnesses in the most appropriate, least restrictive level of care necessary to achieve the desired performance outcomes. Section 5806(a) [Desired performance outcomes enable adults with severe mental illness to reduce symptoms which impair their ability to live independently, work, maintain community supports, care for their children, stay in good health, not abuse drugs or alcohol, and not commit crimes. State standards must include planning for services including outreach, services design, and evaluation strategies that consider cultural, linguistic, gender, age and special needs of minorities in the target population.] (2) Provision shall be made for staff with the cultural background and linguistic skills necessary to remove linguistic barriers to mental health services due to limited English speaking ability and cultural differences (3) Provision shall be made for services to meet the needs of target population clients who are physically disabled. (4) Provision shall be made for services to meet the special needs of older adults. (5) Provision for family support and consultation services, parenting support and consultation services, and peer support or self-help group support, where appropriate.
10 Page 10 of 17 (b)each client shall have a clearly designated mental health case manager or multidisciplinary treatment team who is responsible for providing or assuring needed services. Responsibilities include complete assessment of the client s needs, development of the client s personal services plan, linkage with all appropriate community services, monitoring of the quality and follow-through of services, and necessary advocacy to ensure each client receives those services which are agreed to in the personal services plan. Each client shall participate in the development of his or her personal services plan, and responsible staff shall consult with the designated conservator... and, with the consent of the client, consult with family and other significant persons as appropriate. (c) The individual services plan shall assure that... [system of care clients receive services which are designed to: Section Reduce the disabling conditions of mental illness. 2. Live in the most normal housing feasible in the local community. 3. Have an adequate income and an appropriate level of work or vocational training. 4. Are in good health. 5.
