Author: Thomas J. Umberg

Summary
SB 42, as amended, Umberg. Community Assistance, Recovery, and Empowerment (CARE) Court Program: notice to original petitioner. Existing law, the Community Assistance, Recovery, and Empowerment (CARE) Act, authorizes specified adult persons to petition a civil court to create a voluntary CARE agreement or a court-ordered CARE plan and implement services, to be provided by county behavioral health agencies, to provide behavioral health care, including stabilization medication, housing, and other enumerated services, to adults who are currently experiencing a qualifying severe mental illness and who meet other specified criteria. Existing law authorizes specified individuals to file a petition to commence the CARE process, including, but not limited to, a person with whom the respondent resides or a spouse, parent, sibling, child, or grandparent or an individual who stands in loco parentis to the respondent. Existing law authorizes the court to assign ongoing notification rights if the original petitioner is a person with whom the respondent resides, or a spouse, parent, sibling, child, or grandparent or an individual who stands in loco parentis to the respondent.This bill would require, unless the court determines that it likely would be detrimental to the treatment or well-being of the respondent, that the court provide ongoing notice throughout the CARE proceedings, including, but not limited to, when a continuance is granted or if the case is dismissed, if the original petitioner is a person with whom the respondent resides, or a spouse, parent, sibling, child, or grandparent or an individual who stands in loco parentis to the respondent. The bill would require the court, in the notice, to provide a general reason for the continuance if a continuance is granted, and specified reasons if the court grants dismissal. The bill would prohibit the court from disclosing certain health or medical information in the notice without the respondent’s consent.

Status
