Wrapping up the law-related theme are an article and several smaller pieces on mandated treatment. In their article on page 858, Ralph A. Catalano, Ph.D., and colleagues describe how they tested the hypothesis that evaluations for involuntary psychiatric hospitalizations that were initiated by law enforcement personnel in Florida increased in the weeks after September 11, 2001. In a brief report on page 863, David A. Pollack, M.D., and his coauthors present outcomes of patients in a low-intensity, short-duration involuntary outpatient commitment program. In another brief, Daniel Frank, M.D., F.R.C.P.C., and associates describe their study of psychotic patients' time until readmission to the hospital before and after receipt of a compulsory treatment order (page 867). And in the Law and Psychiatry column, Paul S. Appelbaum, M.D., discusses a recent report evaluating outcomes of patients treated under "Kendra's Law," New York State's five-year-old statute authorizing involuntary outpatient commitment (page 791).
