5150 refers to an involuntary evaluation. Section 5150 is a section of the California Welfare and Institutions Code (specifically, the Lanterman–Petris–Short Act or "LPS") which allows a qualified officer or clinician to involuntarily confine a person deemed to have a mental disorder that makes them a danger to him- or herself, and/or others and/or gravely disabled. Attached are current lists of Behavioral Health Staff that are authorized to issue a 5150 hold.
