Involuntary Commitment

Magistrate’s Office

*The police cannot forcibly take an individual to mental health treatment unless it is an emergency situation where the person is a danger to himself/herself or others.  If you feel the situation is grave enough, you may need to petition the County Magistrate for an emergency commitment order.  This is done in the County Courthouse between 8am and 5pm.  After hours, this can be in the magistrate’s office.   NOTE: If you do need to call 911 to respond to an emergency, be sure to request a responder who has Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) training.
