Central institutions of mental health rarely provide a clear conception of mental health or a clear justification for the differential treatment given to those with mental illness. This book creates a bold new framework for examining the major intersections between legal institutions and the idea of mental illness. Efforts to reconcile involuntary commitment with the right to refuse treatment are reviewed along with a compelling case for requiring as a prerequisite to commitment, a determination of decisional incompetence.
