​Involuntary Detention

Welfare and Institutions Code Section 5402 requires the DHCS (formerly the Department of Mental Health) to collect data on a quarterly basis from each county mental health program or facility on the number of involuntary detentions, the number of temporary and permanent conservatorships established, and the number of persons receiving outpatient services provided within a jail facility.

This website includes forms and instructions for reporting and recent annual data.  A ten-year Trend Report for Fiscal Years 1990-1991 through 1999-2000 is available upon request. Annual tables will be updated as counties and facilities submit complete reports.
