Protect the Health and Safety of all Californians, Repeal the Lanterman-Petris-Short Act

  • By: Martin Fox
  • Target: California State Senators, Assemblypersons and the Governor

California county mental health officials and their self-declared patients rights advocates supporters, like the lawyers masquerading as Disabilty Rights California, are torturing the language of the Lanterman-Petris-Short Act to jusify denying effective mental health treatment to persons living with mental illness, who lack the insight needed to seek treatment, so the mental health officials and so-called advocates be paid for endangering public health and safety.

Persons living with mental illness in California need to have effective mental health treatment without having to become criminals before becoming eligible for it.  They do not need more lawyers so they can "die with their rights on."

The family members of persons living with mental illness need to have a civil way to obtain effective mental health treatment for their loved ones.  They do not need more lawyers to tell them about patient privacy and treatment-refusal rights.

The law enforcement officers of California need to have a way to obtain effective mental health treatment for mentally ill persons that they encounter without having to arrest and book them into county jail.  They do not need more mental health officials to tell them about patient privacy and treatment-refusal rights.

The taxpayers need a way to obtain effective mental health treatment for mentally ill persons that do not need to encounter law enforcement officers in the first place.  They do not need more mental health officials and lawyers to tell them about patient privacy and treatment-refusal rights.

Repeal the Lanterman-Petris-Short Act.  Stop paying immoral county mental health officials and the lawyers who support them, like Disability Rights California.
