Abstract

This commentary describes the functioning of the Oregon Psychiatric Security Review Board (PSRB) from 1978 through 2011, when the Oregon Legislature altered the authority of the PSRB in regard to certain hospitalized insanity acquittees. Following the Hinckley verdict, the American Psychiatric Association recognized the PSRB as a possible future model for the management and treatment of insanity acquittees. The commentary provides an overview of the board from administrative and empirical viewpoints over this 34-year period and discusses the changes made in PSRB statutes in 2012 and the implication of these changes for the future management of insanity acquittees in Oregon.
