Involuntary Treatment Act Services

Designated Mental Health Professionals provide legal assessment of grave disability and/or danger to self or others (as a result of a mental health disorder) for possible involuntary detention to a mental health facility.

As a component of the evaluation, it must be determined that other, less restrictive options for stabilization of the crisis have been ruled out or deemed inappropriate. Additionally, it is expected that the investigation include attempts to interview other significant professional and natural supports as well as reviewing client’s behavioral health history to ascertain a more complete picture of client’s current needs.

This service is available in Skagit, Island, San Juan and Whatcom Counties.
