Out of respect for the forum's rules, I won't state if I'm pro suicide or not. Instead I wanna address and understand why we have this barbaric mental health system that treats us like prisoners.

For example, say I'm homeless with no money, no support system, how in the bluest of blue fucks is locking me up like a criminal and giving me pills suppose to make me wanna live?

The government should have no right to dictate what with do with our bodies as long as we aren't hurting anyone else.

I'm curious though if anyone knows the history of involuntary commitment and how it became law.

Yeah I think it's a profit thing to, they can't make money of us if we're dead.

This entire country is so corrupt beyond repair. Be thankful you don't live in america.

I feel like that sometimes & I'm not even in the mental health system now, sounds crazy....

I have been in hospital before.... fair to say I don't want to repeat the experience... ever. 🤔

Oh yeah anything with the military they have all kinds of money for, but when it comes to actually helping people? Nah fuck that we can't afford it.

This actually is a thing. If you enlist in the military they will give you meds and therapy along with the training you need for service. It's ridiculous.

The mental health system isn't designed to help those with nothing. It's designed to help the middle-class that has insurance. If you're homeless in this country and don't have someone helping you out you're pretty screwed. As far as locking you up in a hospital...If you broke the law and the decision was to send you to a mental hospital (which are terrible nation-wide) they can do that. They will keep you there for the minimum amount of time and boot you out with enough medication for a couple of days and a prescription. It really doesn't help to have a prescription if you don't have insurance...and money to pay the insurance company for them to help you.
