Colorado Policy Seminar: Changes to Mental Health Holds and Civil Commitment Statutes
This course will update clinicians, directors, and policy professionals on historic changes to Colorado’s civil commitment laws and regulations that go into effect in May of 2018. These changes were made by 2017 legislation that was steeped in countless hours of collaborative stakeholder work, policy analysis, and refinement. The course will provide a deep dive into the legislation that brought on the changes, Senate Bill 17-207. Further, audiences will have an opportunity to hear from policy experts who helped inform the new statute, original authors of the bill language, and regulatory experts who wrote the associated rules and regulations.
