In the interactions between our modern society and the mental health profession, many debates arise. When should the law intervene and when should it not? Is it right for patients to be forced into treatment? How much of the financial burden for psychiatric treatment should be carried by the government, and how much by the patient? What is the stigma related to mental health, and how can we see past it?
