Breaking news! NYC mayor Adams new "health/mental health" law allows NYC to involuntarily detain anyone with impunity!
The "inability to care for oneself" can apply to millions living in their parents basements

Following a string of horrifying subway attacks, Mayor Eric Adams dramatically expanded the city’s ability to involuntarily commit New Yorkers with chronic and untreated mental illness.

Big Apple social workers, mental health care treatment teams and police officers have received new specific guidance cleared with state officials that allows them to force anyone into treatment, and not just those posing a danger.


Before today’s announcement, city workers and hospital staff were trained to limit the involuntary commitment program — known as Kendra’s Law — to just those who presented an imminent threat to not only themselves, but also to the general public.



However, City Hall’s lawyers say that guidance issued by Gov. Kathy Hochul’s Office of Mental Health in February provides a more expansive set of criteria that qualify for commitment — including apparent inability to care for oneself — which they are now whole-heartedly embracing.

Most of these violent crazies were the felons DeBlasio released from the prisons "so they wouldnt catch Covid". Now they refuse to put them back in jail so their crimes are legion.

It’s even worse in conservative Florida. It’s called the Baker Act and it’s scary.

I knew a woman who was accused of being suicidal (she wasn’t) and was forcibly put away for 3 days.
