In 2005 the Washington State Legislature altered the name from County Designated Mental Health Professional (CDMHP) to Designated Mental Health Professional (DMHP). Chapter 503, Laws of 2005 (ESSHB 1290)The Division of Behavioral Health and Recovery is furnishing these model documents in the desire that they may be of help to DMHPs in their implementation of the Involuntary Treatment Acts (ITA) – RCW 71.05 & RCW 71.34. They were written and reviewed by experienced DMHPs and lawyers active in the ITA practice and include many features to assist both DMHPs and persons in the judicial system. These documents are being provided to those that find them helpful – they should not be believed required or mandatory. It is always good practice to have any new documents that will be submitted to the courts be reviewed by your legal representative.
