15. The provisions of this act shall not be construed to supersede any court order relating to, or the provisions of any other statute governing, commitment or admission to a psychiatric facility or the provision of mental health care, including, but not limited to, P.L.1987, c.116 (C.30:4-27.1 et seq.).
