She does not have to agree to contact with her ex boyfriend if she feels that this is not in the best interests of her son.
In this case, her ex would have to apply to court to try and gain some contact time. He would have to convince the court that a) he was safe and b) that any contact would be in her son's best interests.
These are pretty big hurdles for him to have to get over given the history.
So for now, she doesn't have to agree to anything and she will have to wait and see if he decides to take this further and apply to court. There's no specific order she needs to apply for as he is institutionalised and there's no way of him having contact at the moment.
Can I clarify anything further for you at this stage?
I didn't hear from you, but I trust that the information provided was of assistance.
