Course Description: Involuntary civil commitment in the United States is a legal intervention ordering a person to inpatient hospitalization or supervised outpatient treatment. Each state dictates standards of care for commitment, and all services must be delivered with respect to an individual’s rights in accordance with the constitution. The continuum of public mental health care has shifted away from state hospitalization to service delivery in other least restrictive settings for adults presenting with serious mental illness. There are several factors responsible for the shift toward deinstitutionalization. This course will review these factors, along with historical laws, policies, and trends that shape the current status of involuntary civil commitment. Ethical principles are also presented, as well as practical policy guidelines for evaluating, reforming, and implementing involuntary civil commitment.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe historical trends and the current status of involuntary commitment in the United States
  2. Identify contributory factors pertaining to deinstitutionalization and the evolving standards of commitment
  3. Examine the ethical principles used to guide civil commitment
