(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.
