    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    Read my other comment under the one you asked about treatment or jail. You will have to go to court. The judge will decide if you go to treatment, get probation, or go to jail. If you go to jail and have proof of mental illness you will still get medical treatment. The jails and prisons are full of people with mental illness. It is not a defense.
