Mental Health Law Project

The Mental Health Law Project (MHLP) is appointed by the Superior Court to represent Vermonters in involuntary mental health treatment and/or medication cases, both in hospitals and in outpatient settings, to ensure that their rights and liberty are protected.

We also represent the rights and interests of people with mental health problems who are potentially subject to mental health statutes and regulations under consideration by the legislature. We advocate on their behalf when the Department of Mental Health decides important issues affecting their rights or the structure of the involuntary mental health system.
