This bill would ban the use of conversion therapy on those over the age of 18 and under legal guardinaship
The current New York State conversion therapy ban forbids conversion therapy on minors under 18. However, it leaves out adults who are under a guardianship because of a mental or intellectual disability. They could be currently forced into conversion therapy. The District of Columbia recently passed such a ban and is the only jurisdiction to do so. New York State would be the second entity and first state to pass this legislation.
