It sounds like you are in a difficult situation and are concerned about your daughters well being. If you feel your daughter is in imminent harm of hurting herself based on a mental disorder then you should petition the court to hospitalize her. Please search this forums archives using invluntary commitment as a keyword. In general the majority of mental health treatment is done in an outpatient setting with hospitalization reserved for stabilization. Every community in the United States has free mental health treatment through Community Mental Health Clinics. You can call one of these clinics in your area, ask your primary care physician or local psychiatrist to facilitate this process. If there is an emergency you can have your daughter taken by the police t the nearest emergency room for a psychiatric evaluation. I hope this was helpful. Good luck.
