Chapter 8 focuses on cases that involve the rights of individuals to receive adequate mental health treatment while involuntarily hospitalized through either civil commitment or insanity defense proceedings. These cases set the stage, many years ago, for environmental and clinical expectations of appropriate care. The cases in this chapter are Rouse v. Cameron, Wyatt v. Stickney, and Youngberg v. Romeo. Cases involving a right to treatment for prisoners are included in chapter 26.
