Sometimes what happens is the person starts being psychotic and attracts attention and gets put in for 72 hour observation. Sometimes it takes more than one 3 day period to get to the point where the person is ordered for therapy.

If you have a connection to a therapist they may help you sort this out.

She has a therapist but they will not help me because I have no rights because I'm not married to her. She tells her doctor everything is wonderful but it isn't. Her local mental hospital doesn't care at all about her condition. I would have to hire a lawyer to get them do sometime. Thanks for the help.

Sorry that sounds so familiar with the stories of avoidance I hear. I think it may be part of the mental illness, maybe even feeling they are all right when their life was a mess.

NAMI told me that I could writer to their therapist and give them voice messages that tell them what is really going on, but that may not work for you. You would not get a reply from the therapist but you could share information especially if they are a harm to themselves or someone else.
