Understanding Legal Commitments

Legal commitments, often referred to as involuntary commitment or civil commitment, are court-ordered measures taken to commit those who allegedly pose a risk to themselves or others due to their mental health condition. These commitments are serious measures taken to restrict an individual’s rights in the name of protecting those individuals and others.

When Legal Commitments May Apply

Emergency Situations

In cases of alleged immediate danger, individuals may be subject to loss of their rights including temporary involuntary commitment, evaluation and treatment.

Long-Term Care

When someone's mental health condition requires ongoing care and supervision, a court may order a longer-term commitment.
