The intervention of the lawyer is of crucial importance after the sentencing of the institutional therapeutic measure for the treatment of mental disorders, especially in view of the concrete risk of never being released and the vulnerability of the convicted person due to his mental disorders. However, the intervention of the therapists in charge of the detainee's follow-up is essential in the context of the execution of the measure. In fact, it is on the basis of the evolution of the condition that led to the pronouncement of the measure that its extension can be considered. There is therefore a necessary interaction between the medical and the judicial authorities in the context of the execution of the measure, each of which must be concerned with enabling the detained person to complete the measure.
