Connecticut Mental Health Bill Defeated Months Before Deadly School Shooting-ACLU said 'infringed on patients' rights

Connecticut Mental Health Bill Defeated Months Before Deadly School Shooting-ACLU said 'infringed on patients' rights | mental health regarding schools | Scoop.it

Connecticut Senate Bill 452 was proposed in February “to enhance the care and treatment of persons with psychiatric disabilities in both inpatient and outpatient settings.” But the bill was defeated in March, with opposition calling it “outrageously discriminatory.” The ACLU said the bill would “infringe on patients’ privacy rights by expanding [the circle of] who can medicate individuals without their consent.”

Had the AOT bill been passed, it would have given the state the right to institutionalize a person who is mentally ill for treatment if the state has enough evidence to believe that the person could be a danger to himself or the community.
