Problems in implementing the 1991 Treatment of Mental Patients Law in Israel.

Author information

  • 1Ness Ziona Mental Health Center, Israel.


The application of the new Treatment of Mental Patients Law, 1991, has been responsible for significant changes in the work of mental health workers, in particular those involved in the often complex process of civil commitment for examination/hospitalization. The experience of implementing this new law shows that some of the clauses related to this process contain controversial concepts. These concepts will be the focus of this paper.
