How do I help someone not willing to get help?

Answer:

In order for you to help someone who is not willing to help themselves, the person must be at risk of imminent harm to themselves or others due to their condition, or their condition must impact them to the point that they are unable to meet their basic needs.

Please go to the Department of Mental Health webpage using the below link to help you with the Civil Involuntary Detention Process. This page includes the reference guide, and forms you will need to help you.
