Description

Mandatory outpatient treatment; rescission of order. Clarifies the types of evidence that may be considered by a court in determining whether continued mandatory outpatient treatment is warranted; clarifies the criteria that a court is required to consider when reviewing or determining whether to rescind or continue a mandatory outpatient order or order for mandatory outpatient treatment following inpatient treatment; provides that if a person who is the subject of a mandatory outpatient treatment order or order authorizing discharge to mandatory outpatient treatment following inpatient treatment files a petition for rescission of the order, the court shall appoint an examiner to personally examine the person to determine whether he meets the criteria for inpatient admission or mandatory outpatient treatment; limits the frequency with which a person who is the subject of a mandatory outpatient treatment order or order authorizing discharge to mandatory outpatient treatment following inpatient treatment may petition for review of such order to no more than once during each 90-day period following entry of such order; and makes clear that a mandatory outpatient treatment order or order authorizing discharge to mandatory outpatient treatment following inpatient treatment remains in full force and effect unless rescinded by the court and that revocation of a person's agreement to abide by a mandatory outpatient treatment plan or discharge plan that has been approved by the court shall not rescind the mandatory outpatient treatment order or order authorizing discharge to mandatory outpatient treatment following inpatient treatment.
