Under what kind of circumstances might one face a lengthy stay in a psychiatric hospital? (aside from an insanity plea, of course)
This is more of a matter of genuine curiosity than a potential action. But lets say for instance, someone who has a history of local, shorter term hospital stays woke up one day and said, "Hey, im going to fake my way as deep into the system as humanly possible and get a commitment to a state hospital,)? Say they're trying to minimize the possbility of their mental health issues leading to their family taking control of their life in the name of 'being a caring family member, for instance. Let's say for instance that such an outcome would surely result in some kind of resurgence of abuse from child/teen years, and they've also decided that they want longer term, albeit lifelong psychiatric help, or at least to be far away from society? Would that be something to go to a hacker for? to submit some kind of false flag mental health report about their well being to local authorities or something?
(also let me say that by 'the system' im referring to hospitals and mental health institutions, NOT jail/prison)
like, what would need to happen in order to be whisked away on a hold? (if it were to be purposeful, of course)
