The following will examine both involuntary commitment and deinstitutionalization, as well as some recent and rather novel proposals that have been championed by those who advocate neither. I refer here to the so called "Ulysses Contract" as well as to "mandatory out-patient treatment." My concern is primarily with the moral and legal aspects of these practices and to that end will focus on more conceptual matters. I will conclude by defending a concept of freedom which does greater justice to patients' needs than does the one currently employed.
