MENTAL HEALTH HOSPITAL ADMISSIONS

Many people experience events in their life which they find difficult to deal with on their own. These people also often turn to private and public mental health care facilities seeking assistance from professionals they have been told are there to help them. Rather than the assistance sought they are coerced or tricked into a voluntary inpatient commitment and are held against their will for hours or even days before finally being released.

People are often embarrassed at the experience but should not be. You have rights which include the right not to be held without your consent protected not only by state law but also by federal law.

I have developed a possible cause of action to protect and to enforce your rights both constitutional and statutory violated by the actions of the private mental health hospital in the admission process and in delaying or prolonging the discharge procedure.

I am interested in discussing your case and, if appropriate, to prosecute an action on your behalf.
