Court Ordered Mental Health Assessments
September 26, 2017
No Limits, in partnership with Side Effects Public Media, discusses mental health assessments for judicial proceedings. What happens when a doctor fails to perform the duties on which the judicial system and the person before the court rely? Public media reporter Steve Burger joins us to discuss his reporting of just such a case, in which the elements involving the doctor are the ones stretching belief. Other experts include former Chief Justice Randall Shepard and Dr. George Parker of the IU Department of Psychiatry.
