Petition Closed

72 hour hold is not enough for a mentally ill person if they are not on/staying on their medications. The parent/guardian needs to have the authority to put their child in a facility for the period of time necessary even though they are 18 or older for their own sake and that of others.

Letter to
All state Senators and government officials
Change the 72 hour hold law for Mental Health patients.
