Mental health counselors, a form of mental health care that is widely seen as having positive benefits, are required to meet with individuals when they need help.
But what about when the court says the treatment you need is being denied?
That’s when a court may order that you see a psychiatrist.
The court may also order that your lawyer provide counseling.
If a court makes such a finding, the court can’t allow you to see your mental health provider.
But it can order that the counselor meet with you.
What does that mean?
In most cases, the psychiatrist who will be working with you to help you deal with the problems in your life will also work with you and your lawyer to determine if there are any other treatments or mental health issues that you can work with.
If you have a mental illness, there are things you can do to reduce the risk of your getting locked up or spending long periods in jail.
If you are under 18, there’s a federal rule that requires your parents to sign off on your treatment.
If your parents don’t sign off, your parents may still have the right to make a decision about what you get to do.
If they don’t, your mother or father has the right under the Family Code to revoke your parental rights.
