The Livingston County Probate Court directs you to:
Livingston County Community Mental Health

Howell, Michigan 48843 
For information regarding services which are available to individuals with mental illness.
The Probate Court assists with mentally ill patients when a Petition/Application for Hospitalization  (PCM 201) is filed with the Court requesting a transport order for an individual to be examined by a physician or licensed psychologist. A Supplemental Petition for Application for Hospitalization and Order for Examination (PCM 209) is also required to be executed by the Petitioner.
If the Court receives a Petition/Application for Hospitalization (PCM201) and 2 Clinical Certificates (PCM 208) from a hospital, the Court schedules a deferral conference and hearing. An attorney is appointed to represent an individual who is the subject of the Petition for the Court proceedings.
