Episode 1: Involuntary Status

When Melissa posts on Facebook that she’s being held unnecessarily on Mt Sinai’s psychiatric ward, 9 South, it begins a journey into the modern mental healthcare system to uncover how the f*ck this is possible?! In this episode, we’ll try to figure out why Melissa was held against her will and force-injected with sedatives at CAMH, we’ll talk to a psychiatric nurse about handling violence, and we’ll venture into the Kafkaesque world of Consent & Capacity Board hearings where people argue over whether you’re sane or not.
