You learn at a certain pace. Then that pace goes away. Then

you try and try to do everything you can. Then it gets harder.

Then you give up. Then its all over.

Depends where you live. I know in Florida there is the Baker's Act and in California the 5150, as well as similar ones throughout the U.S. Involuntary commitment depends on where you live though, and can only be requested by a legal guardian or civil authority (to my knowledge). From there you can be held for a period of up to 72 hours, during which time they'll evaluate your mental state. Generally speaking, they need substantial evidence that you pose a threat to yourself or others, or show signs of self-neglect without external care. They'd probably consult with your parents, make sure everything's alright and release you under the condition that your parents monitor your safety for a week or so and report back. You won't be put into an institution on the first time, and most likely if the scars are old they'll determine that while you may relapse you are not currently a harm to self or others and, as mentioned earlier, will discuss possible treatment plans with your parents.

I would say, first of all, tell your parents now, as they're really the only ones with the power to have you examined and it will be very hard but a lot easier in a relaxed, calm situation than in a stressed, defensive one.



Hope this helps
