A change in mental status that causes a client to pose a risk of substantial danger to others or a violation of the terms of conditional release may result in immediate revocation of the release and return to Oregon State Hospital if the individual is an adult, or to Children's Farm Home or Albertina Kerr if the indivicual is a youth, pending a hearing.  Staff typically intervenes before the client becomes a serious risk to the community.
The grounds for revocation include:
  • Violation of the terms of the conditional release plan
  • A change in mental health status
  • Absconding from supervision
  • The appropriate community resources are no longer available
The efficacy of the Board’s decision-making and the ability of those treated and supervised persons to succeed on conditional release is evidenced by the fact that the Board maintains over 99% of its clients in the community on a monthly basis.
