fluffy2097: Nobody chooses to be born in this world. The least we could do is give people the dignity of getting to chose when they leave it.
fluffy2097: WickerNipple: This exact same thing just happened to a friend of mine a few months ago for the exact same reason.They only kept her three days.72 hours is the standard they keep you under observation.They also keep you in a padded cell as it were though. They aren't actually padded anymore, but there will be nothing in the entire ward or your room that you will be capable of harming yourself with. Not even a staple, or a potted plant you could smash over your head.Now, if you're calm, you'll get out in 72 hours. If you aren't comfortable in your own head and freak out 48 hours in, you're going to be staying a lot longer./Not sure what the laws regarding a family member getting a person out of observation in canada.//In the USA, you'll be released if its determined you aren't a danger to yourself or others. Family members have the right to determine treatment as well.
Meisaims: Please tell me there is more to this story. Were there warning signs of mental illness, or was he just literally handing out money to strangers?

lilbjorn: Apparently also in need of psychiatric help
wildcardjack: Somewhere in the literature, a warning sign of an impending, unimpulisive suicide is the distribution of worldly goods.
fluffy2097: Never. Ever. EVER. Do something nice for a stranger.Doing nice things for strangers gets you put in jail or shot./Thanks culture of fear!//You are safer today then any time in the past 30 years. Not that you'd know.
