730 Child Custody Evaluation California

Gtgt gtgtPEGGY THERE’S NO CONFIRMATION THAT THE SHOOTER AT SANDY HOOK ELEMENTARY SCHOOL HAD A MENTAL ILL SNSES. JOINING ME TO TALK ABOUT MENTAL HEALTH LAWS AND PROGRAMS IN SAN DIEGO ARE MY GUESTS PE U DAD GARCIA, AND DR.MICHAEL PLOPPER, CHEAP MEDICAL OFFICER OF SHARP BEHAVIORAL SERVICES. DR. PLOPPER, 10 YEARS AGO CALIFORNIA PASSED LAURA’S LAW FOR PEOPLE WITH MENTAL ILLNESS Y BELIEVE WHO ARE IN DANGER OF HURTING THEMSELVES OR OTHERS. WHAT IS THAT LAW gtgt gtgt THIS IS A LAW THAT WAS PASSED AS YOU MENTIONED IN THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA IN EARLY.

2000S WHICH THE PURPOSE WAS TO PROVIDE FOR ASSISTED OUT PATIENT TREATMENT FOR PEOPLE WITH SERIOUS MENTAL ILLNESS WHO HAVE BEEN DEMONSTRATED TO HAVE ISSUES WITH NON COMPLIANCE WITH TREATMENT, AND HAVE HAD A POTENTIAL FOR HARM TO SELF OR OTHERS. IT CAN BE IMPLEMENTED IN EACH OF THE COUNTIES IN CALIFORNIA SO EACH COUNTY HAS THE CHOICE OF IMPLEMENTING THIS LAW OR NOT. gtgt gtgtPEGGY ONLY TWO COUNTIES HAVE DONE SO. SAN DIEGO IS NOT ONE. WE’LL GET TO THAT. HOW IS THIS LAURA’S LAW DIFFERENT THAN THE 72 HOUR HOLD WHICH IS AVAILABLE RIGHT NOW.

Gtgt gtgt A 72 HOUR HOLD IS IMPLEMENTED IN PSYCHIATRIC FACILITY OR AT A PERSON CAN BE TAKEN BY THE POLICE TO INITIATE A 72 HOUR HOLD IN A PSYCHIATRIC FACILITY. THIS IS OUT PATIENT TREATMENT. THIS MANDATED OUT PATIENT TREATMENT BY COURT ORDER, DOES NOT FORCE MEDICATION, BUT AT THE SAME TIME DOES CAUSE A PERSON TO GET INTO TREATMENT WHO MAY HAVE A POTENTIAL FRL HARM TO SELF OR OTHERS. gtgt gtgtPEGGY A MANDATORY TREATMENT ON THAT ONE. PIEDAD, IT WAS DECLINED HOW COME gtgt gtgt DOLLAR WERE A NUMBER OF REASONS, CERTAINLY.

Why San Diego Hasnt Implemented Lauras Law

ONE ASSOCIATED WITH THE STAKE HOLDER PROCESS WE THOUGHT A BALANCED APPROACH WOULD BE TO HAVE A PARTICIPATORY MODEL OF SERVICE WHERE THE PARTICIPANT WOULD NOT BE COERCED OR FORCEFUL TO TREATMENT. THE COST ASSOCIATED WITH IT IN TERMS OF THE SERVICE, THE COURT SERVICES, THE PROBATION SERVICES, PD SERVICES, ALL OF THAT CAUSE WAS ALSO TAKEN INTO CONSIDERATION, AND OF COURSE THE WHOLE AREA OF THE CIVIL LIBERTIES AND THE DUE PROCESS FOR INDIVIDUALS. gtgt gtgtPEGGY LET’S TALK ABOUT THE PILOT PROGRAM THAT SAN DIEGO IS TRYING OUT INSTEAD. WHAT IS THE NAME OF IT, AND IN A NUT SHELL.

WHAT DOES IT DO gtgt gtgt IT’S CALL IN HOME OUTREACH TEAM. BASICALLY, WHAT THE PROGRAM IS ABOUT IS A TEAM OF PEER SPECIALISTS AND FAMILY COACHES AND CASE MANAGERS GOING TO THE HOME OF THE INDIVIDUALS AND THE INTENT IS TO ENGAGE THAT INDIVIDUAL INTO SERVICES AND BY FREQUENT VISITS AND WORK WITH THE FAMILY, AND WORK WITH A PARTICIPANT ASSESS WHAT THE NEEDS ARE IN TERMS OF THEIR MENTAL HEALTH OR OTHER NEEDS AND LINK THEM TO SERVICES IN INCOMMUNITY. gtgt gtgtPEGGY THAT’S A VOLUNTARY SERVICE RIGHT NOW, ABOUT 127 PEOPLE IN THAT. gtgt gtgt THERE’S CLOSE TO ABOUT 300 CLIENTS.

OR PARTICIPANTS HAVE BEEN REFERRED, 127 HAVE BEEN OUTREACHED AND ENGAGE UNDER TO THE PROGRAM. gtgt gtgtPEGGY OKAY. DR.PLOPPER, WHAT LEGAL RIGHTS, THIS IS A VOLUNTARY PROGRAM HERE IN SAN DIEGO, DO ADULTS AND CHILDREN HAVE QUH IT COMES TO MANDATORY MEDICAL TREATMENT, INVOLUNTARY MEDICAL TREATMENT ANDOR TAKING MEDICATION gtgt gtgt WELL, SPECIFICALLY PSYCHIATRIC TREATMENT PEOPLE HAVE THE RIGHT TO REFUSE MEDICATION, HAVE THE RIGHT TO REFUSE HOSPITALIZATION, NLESS THEY MEET CRITERIA UNDER THE LPS ACT BEING AN IMMEDIATE DANGER TO SELF, OTHERS. THEY CAN BE PLACED ON A 14 DAY HOLD AFTER.

THE 72 HOURS, AND THEN SOMETIMES IF THEY’RE GRAVELY DISABLED, THAT IS UNABLE TO PROVIDE FOOD, CLOTHING AND SHELTER FOR THEMSELVES, MAY CRITERIA FOR CONSERVATORSHIP. PEOPLE CAN’T REFUSE THAT AT THIS POINT. AND THEN SUPERIOR COURT JUDGES DETERMINE THAT A CONSERVATORSHIP SHOULD BE ENACTED. gtgt gtgtPEGGY WHAT PROKING M F RMS DO YOU THINK THIS IN HOME PROGRAM IS HELPFUL AND I’LL FINISH THIS QUESTION WITH FOR OTHER PROGRAMS HERE IN SO FOR PREVENTING THIS SORT OF VIOLENT ACT THAT WE JUST SAW ON FRIDAY AND MANY OTHERS THAT WE’D SEEN IN THE LAST FEW MONTHS DO WE HAVE PROGRAMS IN PLACE OR WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE.

TO SEE IN PLACE gtgt gtgt I WOULD LIKE TO SEE LAURA’S LAW ENACTED IN THIS COUNTY. I THINK WE ARE MISSING CERTAIN PERSON WHOSE HAVE SERIOUS MENTAL ILLNESS, AND ARE REFUSING TREATMENT AND COULD PRESENT A DANGER TO THEMSELVES AND OTHER PEOPLE. THE IN HOME PROGRAM FULFILLS A NEED IN THE COMMUNITY, BUT I DON’T THINK IT GETS TO IT THOSE PEOPLE WHO PERHAPS MOST NEED THE TREATMENT AND MOST LIKELY TO REFUSE TREATMENT. gtgt gtgtPEGGY LAST QUESTION HERE, WHAT SHOULD SOMEONE WHO’S WATCHING THIS AT HOME DO IF THEY SUSPECT IF THEIR FAMILY MEMBER OR FRIEND.

IS A DANGER TO THEMSELVES OR OTHERS. gtgt gtgt WHEN THE DANGER IS IMMANENT, THEY CAN CALL 911, AND THEY WILL CONNECT TO THE PSYCHIATRIC EMERGENCY RESPONSE TEAM, OR THE PERT, TEAM THAT WILL GO INTO THE HOME, ASSESS THE SITUATION AND EVALUATE THE INDIVIDUAL FOR HOSPITALIZATION. gtgt gtgtPEGGY WHICH IS A POLICE OFFICER AND PSYCHIATRIC EXPERT. gtgt gtgt CORRECT. gtgt gtgtPEGGY ANYBODY IN SAN DIEGO CAN REACH KOWNLTY MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES 24 HOUR AS DAY, 7 DAY AS WEEK BY CALLING TOLL FREE THE NUMBER OF O ON YOUR SCREEN, THAT’S EIGHT 887 24 7240.
