Voluntary Mental Health Database

 

 

HB 3466 passed during the 2009 session and provides an avenue by which individuals with mental illness can voluntarily disclose their medical information to a Community Mental Health Program (CMHP) that will then be accessible to law enforcement. The intent of the legislation was to create a way for individuals to disclose information to the police about their mental health conditions so that when police are faced with challenging situations they have a better grasp on the individual's situation at hand. If you or a family member are interested in finding out more about enrolling in this database, the form for enrollment is available here: Voluntary Mental Health Database Consent Form. Please download, print and take to your local CMHP. If you have any questions on the form or process, please contact Len Ray at 503-945-9714 .
