Assisted Outpatient Treatment (Kendra's Law)

New York State has enacted legislation that provides for court-ordered assisted outpatient treatment (AOT) for certain people with mental illness who, in view of their treatment history and present circumstances, are unlikely to survive safely in the community without supervision.
The New York State Office of Mental Health operates an excellent web site for the explanation of the Assisted Outpatient Treatment process in New York State. Highlights of the Law, answers to frequently asked questions and forms are available at their site.

The contact person in Orange County for issues relating to Assisted Outpatient Treatment is Meghan Keener, AOT Coordinator at the Department of Mental Health. She can be reached at 845-291-2617. In her absence, the Deputy Commissioner or Commissioner will be able to assist callers.
