I’m a 25 year old female, Im stuck with the labels of Treatment Resistant Schizophrenia, OCD, and Depression. I have a community team that I’ve been seeing since I was about 19, over the years my CPN has changed, but the psychiatrist has stayed the same.

I’m looking for a way to leave the mental health services without being involuntary detained in hospital for months on end.

Hi Dakota sun

Sometimes labels can be self-fulfilling prophecies. The brain is very complex with so many reasons why we are the way we are.

Welcome to the forums :)

Touched my heart that message of yours, so young and having to deal with Schizophrenia - I have researched voices/seeing things so much in recent years, and spirituality - the voices thing, more to that than meets the eye - I'll just say if you or anyone else looking on now hear an unwanted voice chirping in with something unpleasant - just override it with the words 'love' or 'light in your mind or say it out loud... Stop that unwanted word - flatten it in its tracks... and check out controlling ego, won't work for all but some/many it will...

In the USA the only way to be put away months on end in a hospital would be after committing a crime and deemed mentally unfit.

Downtown there's people living on sidewalks that's much worse off. They're so out of touch with reality that even operating a computer and living in a structured building isn't possible. Their mental illnesses with the combination of heavy drug use that's deteriorated their brains should be more than enough to be placed into a hospital. Nothing is done until they start attacking people, but even then they might just be herded up like animals and moved back into the slums away from tourists.

I heard some great advice years ago .A tire that's standing still is easy to knock over , but a tire that's rolling is very hard to knock over so I mentally picture that and just work on getting mental freedom. What ever is out there I try listening to doctors , changing diet , listening to high hertz frequency music on you tube , one doctor recommends tapping forehead for OCD takes mind off it.
