Re: “Involuntary commitments can be based on scant speculation” by Jeffrey T. Farmer, Wednesday:

The entire way that its done is off in this state. Someone going through a temporary troubling time such as the death of child, divorce, etc. is evaluated at the epitome of his or her trouble and labeled. Instead of being evaluated after counseling or the end of the emotional turmoil. This hurts people for life unnecessarily.

There has to be a good way to do this, but North Carolina doesn’t have it.
