The Pennsylvania Code website reflects the Pennsylvania Code changes effective through 53 Pa.B. 3392 (June 24, 2023).

55 Pa. Code § 4210.142. Consultation service.

§ 4210.142. Consultation service.

 Consultation service is an organized method by which professional advice is given by a practitioner in the mental health or intellectual disability fields to a practitioner of another discipline or field regarding the mental health or intellectual disability aspects of a problem and the most effective way of dealing with these aspects. The problem may be that of an individual, a specific group or a community. Consultation service by extending the expertise of a mental health or intellectual disability practitioner enables the consultee to become a more effective care-giving person thus making possible a greater use of mental health and intellectual disability professionals as well as identifying those persons who are a high risk. In addition to dealing with individual care-giving persons, mental health and intellectual disability consultation service can also be of great benefit in helping a variety of agencies and groups to be aware of the mental health and intellectual disability implications of their programs and to develop more appropriate and effective services.


   The provisions of this §  4210.142 amended under sections 201(2) and (8) and 202 of the Mental Health and Intellectual Disability Act of 1966 (50 P.S. § §  4201(2) and (8) and 4202).
