Can you get sectioned under the Mental Health Act if you have mental capacity?
I thought I once read you're schizoaffective rather than schizophrenic?From my experience people are only sectioned if the services believe you don't want to be in hospital.
In addition people are more likely to be vulnerable to sections if the staff in hospital find their symptoms amusing and//or intriguing.
That sounds pretty brutal doesnt it but in my experience its alas all too true.
Thats why you don't find many depressive schizophrenics (of which i'm one) in hospital.
