Admission Criteria

Important Information for Involuntary Mental Health Hospitalization

Individuals whose judgment is impaired, and who are unable to understand the need for treatment, are admitted on an Involuntary basis.

Only patients who understand the need for treatment and who are willing to be hospitalized can sign themselves in as Voluntary patients. A court appointed guardian could also sign in the patient if the ward is not opposed to treatment.
