Resource Type



Since 1975, the Mental Health Division has functioned within the Office of Public Defender at George M. Taylor Multi-Service Center. At hospitals throughout the State and in related court proceedings, the Division furnishes counsel to persons involuntarily committed to Maryland psychiatric facilities. Representation is provided to indigent clients upon admission to the hospital, at their periodic reviews, and when seeking judicial release from psychiatric institutions. Criminals in cases involving mental health and similar issues also are represented by the Division. For these, Division staff assist every district and division in the Public Defender system and appear in cases from the district and juvenile courts through the circuit courts to the Court of Appeals.
