So my brother didnt get into brown and he had a bit of a freakout and he threw some stuff around (paper towels and stuff, nothing major) and she called the FUCKING MENTAL HOSPITAL, and I think she wasnt faking.
And now they are coming to pick of my brother, and im SCARED!
Please tell me that she was faking!
I work on an ambulance and I don't know where you live but we don't take anyone to the psychiatric hospital without a full work-up in the hospital first. I imagine your brother is around 18 since it is a college thing. If he is 18 your mother can't have him committed. Only a Doctor can or he can self-commit. Furthermore if she called 911 and you are waiting for the psych hospital to show up and take him that is impossible. 911 doesn't work with psych hospitals. 911 can only dispatch Police, Fire and EMS. Either way you would have had one or all of them knocking on your door already. If this is a legitimate concern please PM me and I will tell you everything I can about how 911 works and about how getting committed to a psych facility works.
