Is there any discussion in the mental health profession about reaching people who avoid treatment out of fear? I know the threat of involuntary hospitalization (and its accompanying loss of personhood) kept me entirely away from treatment until I was in crisis myself, and I could have had a much better late-20s otherwise.

What is your stance on involuntary holds and treatment? Do you think they make it harder for depressed individuals to seek out treatment?
