DIVISION I: PSYCHIATRIC HOLDS
SEC. 4101.  FINDINGS REGARDING PSYCHIATRIC HOLDS.
   (a)   Under California Welfare & Institutions Code §§ 5150, et seq., if there is probable cause to believe that an individual is a danger to him or herself or to others, or is gravely disabled, due to a mental disorder, that individual may be taken into custody for 72 hours for an evaluation and possible treatment.
   (b)   At the end of that 72-hour period, the individual may be involuntarily detained under California Welfare & Institutions Code §§ 5250, et seq., for an additional 14 days of assessment and treatment, upon certification by two treating mental health professionals, and subject to review and challenge by the individual and the individual's patient advocate or attorney.
   (c)   There are situations when the additional 14 days are not sufficient to complete a thorough assessment, achieve patient stabilization, determine future treatment options, and investigate family and/or community resources that can support the individual in the community.
   (d)   Insufficient time for a thorough assessment, treatment, and investigation often results in more restrictive and costly institutional placements of these individuals who then become subject to the supervision of a court-ordered conservatorship, adding to the costs and number of cases handled by the San Francisco Public Conservator and the Superior Court.
   (e)   California Welfare and Institutions Code §§ 5270.10-5270.65 (Article 4.7 of Chapter 2 of the Lanterman-Petris-Short (LPS) Act) authorizes up to a 30-day extension of the 14-day hold, for additional treatment without the need for a court-ordered temporary conservatorship, for a maximum total of 47 days, which includes the initial 72-hour hold under § 5150. In California Welfare and Institutions Code § 5270.10, the Legislature stated its intent "to reduce the number of gravely disabled persons for whom conservatorship petitions are filed and who are placed under the extensive powers and authority of a temporary conservator simply to obtain an additional period of treatment without the belief that a conservator is actually needed and without the intention of proceeding to trial on the conservatorship petition. This change will substantially reduce the number of conservatorship petitions filed and temporary conservatorships granted under this part which do not result in either a trial or a conservatorship."
   (f)   For California Welfare and Institutions Code §§ 5270.10-5270.65 to be operative in a county, the county must legislatively authorize its application in that county upon finding that any additional costs incurred by the county in implementation of those provisions are funded either by new funding sufficient to cover the resulting costs incurred by the county, or funds redirected from cost savings resulting from implementation, or a combination thereof so that no current services will be reduced as a result of implementation.
   (g)   The use of a hold under California Welfare and Institutions Code §§ 5270, et seq. (a "§ 5270 hold") better serves the needs and interests of the client, and allows these patients to avoid the stigma and restrictions of a conservatorship. Any person certified for an additional 30 days is entitled to an impartial certification review hearing, within four days of that determination, conducted by a court appointed commissioner or certification review hearing officer. The patient is also entitled to the assistance of an attorney or advocate. Unlike a conservatorship hearing, a § 5270 certification hearing is held at the treatment facility where the patient is located, and patient does not have to appear in court.
   (h)   During FY 2011-12, the San Francisco Public Conservator filed 394 petitions for Conservatorships with the San Francisco Superior Court. Of those cases filed, the court granted 255 Temporary Conservatorships. During FY 2012-13, 284 petitions were filed and the San Francisco Superior Court granted 190 applications for Temporary Conservatorships. Thus, far more petitions are filed and investigated than actually result in a Temporary Conservatorship. Authorizing the option of a § 5270 hold in the City and County of San Francisco would obviate the need for many of these petitions.
   (i)   For the majority of patients currently placed under a temporary conservatorship, the temporary conservatorship is dropped within 40 days. The use of the § 5270 hold allows a thorough investigation of these clients in order to regulate medications to achieve stabilization and to develop the skill set necessary for returning to the community.
   (j)   The San Francisco Public Conservator receives approximately 300-400 referrals for Temporary Conservatorships annually. In order for the court to grant a Temporary Conservatorship, the referral must be investigated, which can take between 6 to 10 hours, at a cost of $125.00 per hour, as of the effective date of this Sec. 4101. More than half of these Conservatorships are for less than 30 days. If these individuals were placed on a § 5270 hold, rather than a conservatorship, an investigation would be unnecessary, thereby saving the City and County of San Francisco $150,000 to $200,000 annually, and the individual would receive treatment under a less restrictive alternative.
   (k)   Any additional costs incurred by the City and County of San Francisco in the implementation of California Welfare and Institutions Code §§ 5270.10-5270.65 will be funded by the resulting cost savings or by new funding, so that no current service reductions will occur.

DIVISION II: ASSISTED OUTPATIENT TREATMENT
SEC. 4111.  FINDINGS REGARDING ASSISTED OUTPATIENT TREATMENT.
   (a)   California Welfare and Institutions Code §§ 5345-5349.5, also known as "Laura's Law," authorizes counties to implement Assisted Outpatient Treatment ("AOT") to obtain court-ordered mental health treatment for individuals with mental illness for whom other methods of entering and maintaining treatment have been unsuccessful.
   (b)   AOT provides treatment through community-based, mobile, recovery-oriented, multidisciplinary, highly trained mental health teams with a staff-to-client ratio of no more than 10 clients per team member.
   (c)   Several independent studies of similar programs in other states cited in a background paper prepared by the Treatment Advocacy Center show that AOT promotes long-term treatment compliance, and reduces the incidence and duration of hospitalizations, homelessness, arrests, incarcerations, violent episodes, and the victimization of individuals with mental illness by others, while also relieving caregiver stress.
   (d)   These same studies show that states and municipalities that have successfully implemented AOT realized cost savings in their respective mental health, criminal justice, and emergency care systems.
   (e)   According to research cited in The Resident's Journal, a publication of The American Journal of Psychiatry, almost half of the individuals with a severe mental illness in the United States are untreated, and almost half of those individuals suffer from anosognosia (the inability to recognize one's own mental illness) and possess significant deficits in self-awareness.
   (f)   This same research also finds a clear link between lack of insight regarding one's own mental illness and the inability to adhere to treatment, which results in poorer clinical outcomes, illness relapse, hospitalization, and suicide attempts.
   (g)   For severely mentally ill individuals who are unable to maintain a consistent voluntary treatment regime, AOT provides a means to assist and support them through a structured treatment program.
   (h)   Before an AOT program may be implemented in a county under California Welfare and Institutions Code §§ 5345-5349.5, the county must authorize the application of the program in the county by appropriate legislation and make a finding that no voluntary mental health program serving adults, and no children's mental health program will be reduced as a result of implementing AOT.

SEC. 4112.  AUTHORIZING ASSISTED OUTPATIENT TREATMENT; REQUIRED PROGRAMS.
   (a)   The City and County of San Francisco ("City") authorizes the implementation of California Welfare and Institutions Code §§ 5345-5349.5 through court-ordered Assisted Outpatient Treatment ("AOT") within the City as provided in this Division II. The City finds that no voluntary mental health program serving adults, and no children's mental health program within the City will be reduced as a result of implementing AOT.
   (b)   As part of AOT, the City shall provide services that will conform to the requirements of California Welfare and Institutions Code § 5348, or any successor provisions. These services shall include, but are not limited to, community-based comprehensive individual service and delivery plans, which plans shall be gender, age, disability, linguistically and culturally appropriate. The plans shall provide access to housing, and be designed to allow the individual referred to AOT ("Referred Individual") to live in the most independent, least restrictive setting possible. The City shall provide AOT services in each case through a community-based multidisciplinary and highly trained mental health team ("AOT Team") with a staff-to-client ratio of no more than 10 clients per team member.
   (c)   The County Mental Health Director ("Director") shall create a Care Team. The Care Team shall work closely with the Referred Individual and the individual requesting the AOT petition to maximize all opportunities within AOT to engage individuals who meet AOT criteria into voluntary treatment.

SEC. 4114.  MAXIMIZING ENGAGEMENT IN VOLUNTARY TREATMENT.
   (a)   Referral to AOT provides two key opportunities for voluntary engagement of individuals meeting AOT criteria prior to a court hearing:
      (1)   Immediately after the request for petition and before the filing of a petition with the court; and
      (2)   After the filing of a petition and before the conclusion of the court hearing on the petition.
   (b)   At each of the two opportunity points listed in Subsection 4114(a), the Care Team shall make every attempt to engage the Referred Individual into voluntary treatment.
   (c)   The Referred Individual shall at all times have the opportunity to voluntarily participate in a FSP. The Care Team shall work closely with the Referred Individual and the individual initiating the petition in an effort to engage the Referred Individual into a FSP as a preferred alternative to court-ordered treatment.
   (d)   All evaluations of the Referred Individual shall be conducted in the least restrictive setting.
   (e)   The Referred Individual may not be transported for evaluation by a peace, probation or parole officer, unless there is probable cause to believe that the individual meets the criteria required by California Welfare and Institutions Code § 5150, or there is no other means to safely transport the Referred Individual.
   (f)   The AOT Team shall also ensure that individuals referred for AOT who do not meet AOT criteria are evaluated for, and connected to, the appropriate level of mental health treatment.

SEC. 4115.  PETITION.
   (a)   The following persons may request the Director, or the Director's designee, to file a petition with the Superior Court for AOT:
      (1)   Any person 18 years or older with whom the Referred Individual resides;
      (2)   Any person who is the parent, spouse, adult sibling, or adult child of the Referred Individual;
      (3)   The director of a facility providing mental health services where the Referred Individual resides, the director of a hospital where the Referred Individual is hospitalized or a licensed mental health treatment provider who treats the Referred Individual or supervises the treatment of the Referred Individual; or
      (4)   A peace, probation or parole officer assigned to supervise the Referred Individual.
   (b)   If the Director or designee finds that good cause supports the request, he or she may file a verified petition with the Superior Court that sets forth all of the following elements:
      (1)   That the Referred Individual is at least 18 years old and is present in the City;
      (2)   That the Referred Individual is suffering from a mental illness as defined in California Welfare and Institutions Code §§ 5600.3(b)(2) and (3), or any successor provisions;
      (3)   That there has been a clinical determination that the Referred Individual is unlikely to survive safely in the community without supervision;
      (4)   That there is a history of the Referred Individual's lack of compliance with treatment, based on at least one of the following:
         (A)   twice within the last 36 months, mental illness was a substantial factor in the Referred Individual's hospitalization or receipt of mental health services in jail, not including any period during which the Referred Individual was hospitalized or incarcerated immediately preceding the filing of the petition, or
         (B)   within the last 48 months, the Referred Individual's mental illness resulted in one or more acts of serious violent behavior toward himself or herself or others, or the Referred Individual threatened or attempted to cause serious physical harm to himself or herself or others, not including any period in which the Referred Individual was hospitalized or incarcerated immediately preceding the filing of the petition;
      (5)   That the Referred Individual has been offered the opportunity to participate in a treatment plan that includes all of the services set forth in Section 4112, but continues to fail to engage in treatment;
      (6)   That the Referred Individual's condition is substantially deteriorating;
      (7)   That participation in AOT would be the least restrictive placement necessary to ensure the Referred Individual's recovery and stability;
      (8)   That the Referred Individual's treatment history and current behavior indicate that the Referred Individual needs AOT to prevent relapse or deterioration that would likely result in grave disability or serious harm to himself or herself or in a civil commitment under California Welfare and Institutions Code §§ 5150, et seq.; and,
      (9)   That it is likely that the Referred Individual would benefit from AOT.
   (c)   The Director or designee shall submit with the petition the supporting affidavit of a licensed mental health treatment provider, or providers, testifying as to all of the elements identified in subsection (b). The provider must be willing and able to testify at the hearing and must base the affidavit on his or her personal examination of the Referred Individual occurring no more than 10 days prior to the filing of the petition, unless the provider attempted to examine the Referred Individual during that time, but the Referred Individual refused to be examined, in which case the affidavit shall so state.
   (d)   After the Director or designee files the petition, but before the conclusion of the court hearing on the petition, the Referred Individual or with the Referred Individual's consent, the Referred Individual's legal counsel, may waive the Referred Individual's right to the hearing, and agree to obtain treatment under a written settlement agreement, provided an examining licensed mental health treatment provider states that the Referred Individual could survive safely in the community. The term of the settlement agreement may not exceed 180 days, and the agreement shall be subject to the provisions of California Welfare and Institutions Code § 5347.
   (e)   The Superior Court may order AOT for the Referred Individual if the court finds that all of the elements of the petition, as required in subsection (b), have been established by clear and convincing evidence.

      (1)   To receive personal service of all notices of hearings, as well as notice to parties designated by the Referred Individual;
      (2)   To receive a copy of the court ordered evaluation;
      (3)   To be represented by counsel, and if the Referred Individual cannot afford counsel, to be represented by the Public Defender;
      (4)   To be present at all hearings, unless the Referred Individual knowingly waives such right;
      (5)   To be informed of the right to judicial review by habeas corpus;
      (6)   To present evidence, call and examine witnesses, and cross-examine witnesses, at the AOT hearing; and
      (7)   To be informed of the right to appeal the court's decisions.
   (b)   If Referred Individual is not present at the AOT hearing, and the court orders AOT for the Referred Individual, the Referred Individual may file a habeas corpus petition challenging the court's imposition of AOT on the Referred Individual, and AOT may not commence until that petition is resolved.
   (c)   During each 60-day period of AOT, the Referred Individual may file a habeas corpus petition to require the Director, or the Director’s designee, to prove that the Referred Individual still meets all the criteria for AOT, as set forth in Section 4115(b).
   (d)    If the Referred Individual refuses to participate in AOT, the court may order the Referred Individual to meet with the AOT Team designated by the Director. The AOT Team shall attempt to gain the Referred Individual cooperation with the treatment plan ordered by the court. If the Referred Individual is still not cooperative, he or she may be subject to a 72-hour hold pursuant to the requirements of California Welfare and Institutions Code § 5346(f).
   (e)   Except as stated in subsection (d), failure by the Referred Individual to comply with AOT is not a basis for involuntary civil commitment, or contempt of court.
   (f)   Involuntary medication is not authorized under AOT without a separate and specific court order.
   (g)   The court may order no more than six months of AOT. If the Director, or Director's designee, determines that further AOT for the Referred Individual is appropriate, the Director must, prior to the expiration of the initial period, apply to the court for authorization to extend the time for a period not to exceed an additional 180 days.
   (h)   Every 60 days, the Director, or Director’s designee must file an affidavit with the court affirming that the Referred Individual continues to meet the criteria for AOT, as set forth in Section 4115(b). If the Referred Individual disagrees with this affidavit, he or she shall have the right to a hearing, at which the Director shall have the burden of proving that the Referred Individual continues to meet the criteria for AOT.

DIVISION IV: HOUSING CONSERVATORSHIPS
SEC. 4131.  FINDINGS.
   (a)   State law establishes a procedure for the appointment of a conservator for a person who is determined to be gravely disabled as a result of a mental health disorder or an impairment by chronic alcoholism. Chapter 3 of Part 1 of Division 5 of the California Welfare and Institutions Code. State law also establishes a procedure for the appointment of a conservator for individuals who are unable to properly provide for their needs for physical health, food, clothing and shelter, and for individuals who are substantially unable to manage their finances or resist fraud or undue influence. Division 4 of the California Probate Code.
   (b)   Notwithstanding State and City laws and programs designed to provide care for persons who are unable to care for themselves, some people fall through the cracks. For example, conservatorships under the Lanterman-Petris-Short Act, Chapter 3 of Part 1 of Division 5 of the California Welfare and Institutions Code (“LPS conservatorships”), do not take into consideration substance use disorders other than alcoholism. Therefore, individuals with a serious mental illness and co-occurring substance use disorder other than alcohol can be ineligible for LPS conservatorships, notwithstanding their mental health disorder and resulting needs.
   (c)   Individuals grappling with severe mental illness and a debilitating substance use disorder are often difficult to treat under existing short-term psychiatric programs and outpatient drug treatments available outside of conservatorship; these individuals often cycle in and out of treatment and have difficulty maintaining stable housing. As of the adoption of this Division IV, there is no avenue to conserve individuals in a supportive housing environment that provides wraparound services to those individuals.
   (d)   S.B. 1045 (Housing Conservatorship for Persons with Serious Mental Illness and Substance Use Disorders), codified at Chapter 5 of Part 1 of Division 5 of the California Welfare and Institutions Code, authorizes the counties of San Francisco, San Diego, and Los Angeles, to establish procedures for the appointment of a conservator for a person who is incapable of caring for the person’s own health and well-being due to a serious mental illness and substance use disorder, for the purpose of providing the least restrictive and most clinically appropriate alternative needed for the protection of the person.
   (e)   The Department of Public Health (“DPH”), the Human Services Agency (“HSA”), and the Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing (“HSH”) developed a plan (“the Housing Conservatorship Plan”) to implement Chapter 5 of Part 1 of Division 5 of the California Welfare and Institutions Code, in consultation with representatives of disability rights advocacy groups, a provider of permanent supportive housing services, the county health department, law enforcement, labor unions, and staff from hospitals located in San Francisco. The Housing Conservatorship Plan is available in Board of Supervisors File No. 181042.
   (f)   As required by S.B. 1045, as codified in subsection (b)(2) of Section 5450 of the California Welfare and Institutions Code, the Board of Supervisors held public hearings on May 13, 2019, and May 20, 2019, where staff from DPH, HSA, and HSH presented the Housing Conservatorship Plan to the Board of Supervisors, and provided testimony concerning the available resources for the implementation of Chapter 5 of Part 1 of Division 5 of the California Welfare and Institutions Code. Based on materials and testimony presented at the hearing, the Board of Supervisors finds that the services set forth in subsection (b)(2) of Section 5450 of the California Welfare and Institutions Code are available in, at a minimum, sufficient quantity, resources, and funding levels to serve the identified population that the Board of Supervisors intends to serve in connection with the implementation of the Housing Conservatorship Program.
   (g)   The City finds that no voluntary mental health program serving adults, no children’s mental health program, and no services or supports provided in conservatorships established pursuant to Division 4 (commencing with Section 1400) of the California Probate Code or conservatorships established pursuant to Chapter 3 (commencing with Section 5350) of the California Welfare and Institutions Code), including availability of conservators, will be reduced as a result of implementation of the Housing Conservatorship Program.

SEC. 4133.  AUTHORIZATION OF THE HOUSING CONSERVATORSHIP PROGRAM.
   (a)   The City authorizes the implementation of Chapter 5 (commencing with Section 5450) of Part 1 of Division 5 of the Welfare and Institutions Code through the establishment of the Housing Conservatorship Program, as provided in this Division IV.
   (b)   The purpose of the Housing Conservatorship Program is to provide the least restrictive and most clinically appropriate alternative needed for the protection of a person who is incapable of caring for the person’s own health and well-being due to a serious mental illness and substance use disorder, as evidenced by frequent detention for evaluation and treatment pursuant to Section 5150 of the California Welfare and Institutions Code (“Section 5150”). If the court determines that the person needs to be moved from the person’s current residence, the placement shall be in supportive community housing that provides wraparound services, such as onsite physical and behavioral health services, unless the court, with good cause, determines that such a placement is not sufficient for the protection of that person.
   (c)   The procedures for establishing, administering, and terminating a conservatorship under this Division IV shall be as set forth in Chapter 5 of Part 1 of Division 5 of the California Welfare and Institutions Code.
   (d)   The San Francisco Public Conservator is designated to provide conservatorship investigations as set forth in this Division IV, and those investigations shall comply with the requirements of Chapter 5 of Part 1 of Division 5 of the California Welfare and Institutions Code.
   (e)   The San Francisco Public Conservator may appoint a conservator of the person for a San Francisco resident who is incapable of caring for the person’s own health and well-being due to a serious mental illness and substance use disorder, as evidenced by frequent detention for evaluation and treatment pursuant to Section 5150.
   (f)   A Housing Conservatorship pursuant to this Division IV shall not be established if a conservatorship or guardianship for the person exists under Division 4 (commencing with Section 1400) of the California Probate Code or under Chapter 3 (commencing with Section 5350) of the California Welfare and Institutions Code.
   (g)   The following professionals may recommend an evaluation for Housing Conservatorship to the Public Conservator or the Care Team upon a determination that a person in the professional’s care is incapable of caring for the person’s own health and well-being due to a serious mental illness and substance use disorder, as evidenced by frequent detention for evaluation and treatment pursuant to Section 5150:
      (1)   The Sheriff, or the Sheriff’s designee;
      (2)   The Director of the Department of Public Health, or the Director’s designee;
      (3)   The Director of the Human Services Agency, or the Director’s designee; or
      (4)   The professional person in charge of an agency providing comprehensive evaluation or a facility providing intensive treatment.
   (h)   Before the Public Conservator conducts an evaluation of eligibility for a Housing Conservatorship, the Care Team shall work with the individual who has been recommended for evaluation to maximize engagement in voluntary treatment, as set forth in Section 4134, as a preferred alternative to a Housing Conservatorship, and the City shall make a documented offer of intensive case management, mental health services, substance use treatment, placement in a clinically appropriate treatment program, and upon discharge from such program, placement in permanent housing that is clinically appropriate for the individual, as determined upon placement.
   (i)   If the Public Conservator, upon conducting an evaluation for Housing Conservatorship, finds that the person meets the criteria for Housing Conservatorship, that the City has made a documented offer of intensive case management, mental health services, substance use treatment, placement in a clinically appropriate treatment program, and upon discharge from such program, placement in permanent housing that is clinically appropriate for the individual, as determined upon placement, and that the Housing Conservatorship is the least restrictive alternative, the officer shall petition the Superior Court of San Francisco to establish a Housing Conservatorship.

SEC. 4134.  MAXIMIZING ENGAGEMENT IN VOLUNTARY TREATMENT.
   (a)   Referral of an individual to the Public Conservator for evaluation of eligibility for a Housing Conservatorship provides three key opportunities to engage the individual in voluntary treatment:
      (1)   Immediately after the referral and before evaluation begins;
      (2)   Immediately after the Public Conservator confirms the individual’s eligibility for a Housing Conservatorship, but before the filing of a petition; and
      (3)   After the filing of a petition, but before the hearing on the petition.
   (b)   At each of the opportunities listed in subsections (a)(1)-(3) of this Section 4134, the Care Team shall make every attempt to engage the referred individual in voluntary treatment.
   (c)   The Care Team also shall ensure that individuals who are determined to not meet the eligibility criteria for a housing conservatorship are evaluated for, and invited to engage in, voluntary mental health services and substance use treatment.

SEC. 4135.  UNDERTAKING FOR THE GENERAL WELFARE.
   In enacting and implementing this Division IV, the City is assuming an undertaking only to promote the general welfare.

SEC. 4136.  SUNSET DATE.
   This Division IV shall expire by operation of law on December 31, 2023, unless the Legislature has amended Chapter 5 of Part 1 of Division 5 of the Welfare and Institutions Code to extend the authorization of local housing conservatorship programs beyond that date. If Chapter 5 is amended to extend beyond December 31, 2023, but to remain in effect only until a later date certain, on which date it is repealed, this Division IV shall expire by operation of law on that later date certain.
