This doesn't sound right to me. I suppose the law(s) might be different from area to area. Perhaps do a little research . I think mobile crisis would be able to tell you about this. I doubt too that your family doctor would have you committed.

Some people go into hospital because they are having a change of medications. Others may go into hospital for respite to stop things getting to a point where they are really sick.

My insurance won't pay unless I am actively suicidal. In fact the place that I went IP a few years back basically told us that if we wanted to stay we had to say that we were suicidal. They didn't put it that straightforwardly, but that was the gist of what they were saying. And I have very good insurance. It has paid for years of psychotherapy, multiple sessions each week.

Trigger Warning

I have come to an end in my 3.5 years struggle to make peace with my wife, and lost all hope. I have lost hope in living this life anymore. My coworkers noticed that I was suicidal, and my therapist also figured it out from an SMS I have sent. I was also bleeding my wrist.

Both my pDoc and T communicated, intervened and said I better go inpatient. I was mostly sleeping and not so alert last weekend. Monday I got admitted with a letter from my pDoc.

My sister warned me of ECT. But I was in a state of mind open to any treatment that would clear up my mind. Somehow that was not needed.

This was my first time in psych ward. Only today I got back on leave. Monday I'm supposed to check back in.

I was suicidal three weeks ago for the same reason, but I was not drunk then. So I couldn't make it.

I AGREE TO THIS!

The ONLY way I would go in voluntarily is if I know what hospital I will be taken to and if I know they will treat me like a human being.

Even then, I will probably fight against it, but I won't fight as hard.

Iíve had a mix of voluntary and involuntary admissions. Generally I could have be committed if I hadnít been voluntary. Itís almost always for dangerousness to self, though once I was in a mixed episode and another time the pdoc wanted to start my ECT depression treatment inpatient.

I have never gone in with the 5150. But I know in the US, they can't legally hold you for more than 72 hours. At most hospitals checking in and out is voluntary. I voluntarily checked myself at a hospital and the next day voluntarily checked myself out.
