Mental Health Patients Rights in Scott County

In this article, our Scott County mental health lawyers explain the rights mental patients have in Scott County. When a person receives mental health services, he or she cannot be denied any rights, or privileges or benefits that are guaranteed by law, the State , or the country's constitution because he or she is receiving mental health services. When a person is admitted or is being treated for a mental health issue by a mental health facility it doesn’t automatically mean a person is legally incompetent. Legal competency is decided on at a separate court hearing and if a person is deemed legally incompetent, the court appoints a guardian to assist that person to manage assets and make life decisions.
