Sorry to hear about that, lulu --- sounds like the Mental Health Act is not being operated properly by some of these lazy state and hospital based shrinks. I hope Cronje is more fortunate. There are provisions in the Law for admission for Observation, as an emergency, but I didnt notice any requirement for this to be at a State hospital before admission to a private facility --- considering the grotesque facilities and staff at some state facilities, this could amount to a breach of human rights.
