Abstract The Mental Health Project was counsel to the class in this class action lawsuit that established what have become known as “Koskinas” rights: the right of individuals with psychiatric disabilities who are inpatients in psychiatric units in New York City hospitals to receive discharge planning prior to their release into the community. Discharge planning requires hospital staff to provide their patients with linkages to mental health services, including access to housing, benefits, medication and outpatient treatment, upon their release. Mental Health Project staff continue to enforce the rights established in Koskinas by advocating for patients in psychiatric units across New York City.
