I'd like to hear from you if you have been successful in forcing an unwilling person to go to the doctor. My mother in law is a raging lunatic. Won't go to to the doctor. Doctor has dropped her as a patient for no shows. My father in law refuses to call social services or admit to the police she has a problem. When confronted he broke down and said he won't force her to get help, he's protecting her and he'd be arrested before turning on her. If I call social services can they force her to the hospital if she doesn't threaten them? I've spent hours researching online and it appears that unless she's a danger to herself or others nothing can be done. If you mention it to her she blows up and goes on a two hour rant accusing everyone else of a slew of reasons why she won't see a doctor. We've been going through this for a year and we feel desperate. She needs help. She is psychotic and dillusional. Please don't suggest hiring a lawyer - no funds for that.
