    can a person who has attempted suicide be forceably committed to a mental institution, and then be forced to pay for it?

    Yes, and yes, without a doubt.

    (Though the former generally requires a court order - there are one or two exceptions to that though, I believe)

    Okay, here's a link to a complaint form for an involuntary commitment. Read it.

    http://tn.gov/mental/t33/MHDD5112.pdf

    Now, you will be allowed due process.

    You can illustrate to the court that your involuntary commitment isn't necessary.

    Please read the following and take note of item number five!

    You can ask the court to appoint an attorney to represent you and protect your rights!

    IF this happens, that MUST be your first move, if the court doesn't beat you to it!

    I suspect this is more about the hospital bill.

    Could be, don't know.

    But, not trying to be cruel, if I was upset or disturbed enough to do attempt to do myself in (hypothetically speaking, of course), I don't think I'd be worried about debts.

    Why?

    Because, if I failed, I'd be plotting my next attack on me! :roflmao:

    AJ, You kill me sometimes. OP obviously got his moneys worth, by wanting to live enough to worry about the bill.
