1st Reading at State Board of Human Services of the Involuntary Transportation for Immediate Screening Proposed Rules

The Office of Behavioral Health will be presenting the Involuntary Transportation for Immediate Screening proposed rules for first reading at the State Board of Human Services meeting on February 2, 2018, in Fort Collins, Colorado.

The new rules will only affect designated facilities, but the rules will provide the outline for best-practice guidelines.  The Office of Behavioral Health will create and distribute these best-practice guidelines, to inform individuals with lived experience, other facilities, and intervening professionals on how the new hold procedure should be implemented.
