HB14-1271 - Mental Health Duty To Warn Target Entities

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning Extending A Mental Health Provider's Duty To Warn To Include Specific Entities That, If Purposefully Damaged Or Attacked As A Result Of A Mental Health Patient's Violent Behavior, Would Jeopardize Public Health And Safety.

Current law grants immunity from liability to a mental health provider (provider) who has a duty to warn a specific person or persons when a patient has communicated to the provider a serious threat of imminent physical violence against that person or persons. The bill would extend that immunity and duty to warn to include specific entities that, if purposefully damaged or attacked as a result of a mental health patient's violence, would jeopardize public health and safety if the patient has communicated to the provider a serious threat of imminent physical violence against that entity.
