Hi Red, can you take this person to the doc or the emergency room?

Re: how do i get someone registered to a mental institution

How do you get someone admitted? to a psychiatric institute? you'll find the facility listed in your yellow pages. The person you want admitted has to do it all themselves...and they have to have either the money or the insurance to pay for it. If they are too ill to know they have problems then depending on your state you have to have them evaluated first. Your question is impossible to answer completely without more specific information.

They would have to admit themselves. You can call the cops if they want to hurt themselves or someone else.

And, be careful what you say on this board...we are not "crazy people".
