From Joshua's mom, Jan.
We need a psychiatrist and one other doctor to say Joshua is not capable of looking after himself and he needs to be formed to get him admitted to hospital. I need temporary medical decision making or "power of committee " which gives me the right to make medical decisions on his behalf. He is a danger to himself and possibly others as he is in full psychosis. Two signatures from two physicians stating Joshua is not well enough to care for himself and my lawyer puts it in front of a judge no court date needed and either the judge approves it or not. Then I can have him treated .
Although this petition is about Joshua, we are working towards the bigger picture in trying to help other families in similar situations. Whether the person is living on the streets or not, if someone with a mental illness is not in a position to care for themselves, we, as family members, need to be able to step up and make decisions in their best interest to get them into care. When they are at their lowest and are a danger to themselves and possibly to others, this is when we need to be able to help them the most.
Please sign this petition to help Jan help Josh, before it is too late for this family.
