How can I get treatment for a family member who has a mental illness, but is refusing treatment?

People generally have the right to consent to, or refuse, treatment. However, under certain conditions – such as when a person is considered a danger to self or others – he or she may be required to seek or receive treatment. This can include involuntary civil commitment, which can be for either outpatient or inpatient treatment, as well as forced medication. Laws about commitment vary by State.
