On August 27, 2001, the First Judicial District of Pennsylvania instituted an Electronic Filing System for the electronic filing of Civil Mental Health Applications and Petitions.
All Mental Health Applications or Petitions under Section 303, 304, 305 and 306 of the Mental Health Procedures Act of 1976, as amended, and Petitions for Review of the commitments and decisions of the Court appointed Mental Health Review Officers, must be filed electronically.
YOU CANNOT ACCESS THE MENTAL HEALTH ELECTRONIC FILING SYSTEM UNLESS THE FJD HAS AUTHORIZED YOU TO DO SO BY PROVIDING YOU WITH A USER NAME AND PASSWORD.
Only authorized employees of medical facilities which are involved in rendering treatment to Mental Health patients will be provided with a User Name and Password to access to the Mental Health Electronic Filing System to file Mental Health Applications and Petitions.
The request for User Names and Passwords for authorized employees must be made by the Medical Facility’s Mental Health Coordinator.
