The legal landscape has changed since the Illinois Supreme Court ruled in 2017 (In re Linda B., 2017 IL 119392) that ALL hospitals or sections thereof that treat persons with a mental health issue need to follow the provisions of the Illinois Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities Code. This game- changing opinion has impacted every hospital in Illinois with and without a behavioral unit. Understanding the ramifications of Linda B. and its progeny will enable lawyers to more effectively advocate for clients and obtain the services that individuals need to address their mental health issues. This session offers practical examples and real-life advice to assist all practitioners in addressing the complexity of mental health impact on clients, their families and the professionals who serve them.
