SB 6109: Ensuring persons with serious mental illness and substance use disorders receive proper care and assistance

The legislature intends to create a pilot program in the three largest counties of the state that allows the counties to intervene and help those who are not found to be imminently dangerous but who are unable to care for themselves due to a mental health or substance use disorder. The legislature intends to provide services and help to these persons in the least restrictive and most clinically appropriate way possible.
