​The Incompetent to Stand Trial (IST) Workgroup

The Incompetent to Stand Trial (IST) Workgroup is a group convened by the Health and Human Services Agency to examine issues around IST admissions at the Department of State Hospitals (DSH) and the Department of Developmental Services (DDS).   The workgroup has representation from a broad range of stakeholders at the state and county level, including representatives from areas such as criminal justice and the courts, county behavioral health, the office of the public guardian, and patient right's advocates.  This page contains links and PDFs to documents that the workgroup has examined and will be updated periodically.
