I’ve known of firearms enthusiasts who have committed suicide rather than be served a mental health committment and therefore banned from possession.
I worked for years in the ER of a major hospital located in a major city.Our hospital,unlike some,didn't have a psych ward because 1) there was a huge state psychiatric hospital within a couple of hundred yards of our front door and 2) because there was another major hospital located right down the street that *had* one.Anyway,I can tell you hundreds of stories about involuntary commitments to the nearby state hospital.Some went quietly....many most assuredly did *not*.
Really.Sorry to hear that.
A friend of mine did away with himself after some silly sot at work got it into her head that he was a bit too sad or something. I didn’t get enough of the full story, and didn’t observe it since I was away with my mom for two months before. They had the state take him to the hospital, and he was promptly released, without any adverse diagnosis. But that suggestion and the embarrassment of being hauled away in front of everyone at work was all he needed to go over the edge. He was dead a week later, in my opinion due to the meddling of the busybody.
