Civil Commitment
• The Office of Inspector General has created an interactive Civil Commitment Training. It provides basic information and concepts around the commitment process in Minnesota. Voluntary treatment is always preferred, but if commitment is necessary, the ultimate goal is to provide the necessary care while protecting the rights of the patient.
• Civil commitment is the legal process by which a court orders mental health treatment. Medical and legal professionals both play a role in civil commitment.
