    Great article and thought provoking. I’ve always stated; “Who then are the medical professionals detaining and treating if they refuse those most in need?”

    I don’t hesitate to say we should all be concerned about the medical profession cherry picking their patients, patients who may have lots of money or private insurance to pay for treatment as a voluntary or involuntary patient.

    I’ve been a mental health advocate since 2001 and have read concerning words from a BC consult lawyer “Those with non treatable mental illness will usually be refused treatment in ER.”
