Ep.136: Mental Health Commitments
Jessa and Nick are joined by friend of the podcast and head-shrinking extraordinaire, Kate Wallinga from Ignorance Was Bliss (@iwbpodcast) and the newly-started WeToo podcasts. We talk about the liberty interests associated with emergency detentions, community caretaker roles of police, and forcing medication. We also get the chance to compare and contrast how mental health emergencies are treated in different parts of the country.
After you're done here, hop over to Kate's feed and listen to Nick and I role play what it would be like to be subject to an emergency detention. (We promise we're acting.)
