My adult daughter has mental illness but refuses to believe she is sick. Because she is a adult and does not threaten anyone or herself, we can not get the help she needs. Our laws should be changed, especially for families that love their adult children and want to help them. Why do we have to wait til someone gets hurt? I have had to involuntarily commit her, and then she knows the system and signs herself out after 72 hrs.
