Yikes. Amanda has been on a psychiatric hold for 2 weeks, and she has now been placed on a 30 day hold because her doctors said she isn’t even well enough to go a hearing today where her parents were trying to get a conservatorship. Wow.
According to the law, doctors can only get such an order if the patient is “gravely disabled as a result of a mental disorder.”
Amanda’s parents will still pursue the temporary conservatorship, we’ve learned, because it will stay in effect until Sept. 30th. And the conservatorship would allow her parents to control Amanda’s finances.
Wow. I don’t know what else to say other than I hope they’re able to help her.
