Legislation -Involuntary Emergency Transport "10-13"

03/22/2017 5:36 PM | Gale Macke (Administrator)

Today, the House of Representatives voted 140 to 23 in support of SB 52 which removed the “sunset” provision on LPCs right to be included permanently in the list of providers (MD, Psychiatric, Psychologist, Social Workers, and psy nurses) to sign an Involuntary Emergency Transport form (called the 10-13 for MH and the 20-13 for substance abuse) to have a person transported to the nearest receiving facility for an mental health evaluation. If the “sunset” was not removed, LPCs would have been removed from the list on July 1, 2018.
