Q
My son or daughter is diagnosed with a mental illness and refuses to take medication, what can I do?

A

If he or she is a danger to himself or herself, or anyone else, call 911 or obtain a Mental Illness Warrant.  If he or she meets the criteria, he or she will be taken to a hospital, which would begin the Mental Illness Commitment process.  Part of this process will be to file an application for court ordered psychiatric medication.  Keep in mind that he or she would have to meet the necessary criteria. Contact us for additional information on this process.
