    Yes I believe you can be. If they have reason to believe you are a danger to yourself or others they can section you. It sucks but its true. Please don't hurt yourself hun.

    Yes, in the US the police can take you into the hospital for a 72 hour hold if the doctor (doesn't have to be a psychiatrist) agrees. For more than time than that a psychiatrist has to take you to court (police actually physically take you to the court). You stay until the psychiatrist agrees you are not a danger to yourself or others, but you have to go back to court to be released. You cannot be forced to take medicine unless the court requires it.

    I have been in there ten times.. The only bad part is the boredom..Have someone bring you a book..It helps pass the time..Each time I went in was voluntary because I didn't want to go in front of the judge..They threatened to send me to state hospital once when I was in there..Now thats nowhere I want to go..I told them whatever they wanted to here then..
  9. Thank you for everyone help. I am put in a trash my backup plan. I can't go there because of my terminal illness they are not handle of that as they say. One psychology treatment stay 2 hours.
