STEVENS New York Times DETROIT As her lawyer tells she was a 58 -year old woman who liked to be by herself in a room in a welfare hotel in Manhattan. But she had a kidney and her neighbors accused her of monopolizing the floor's only bathroom. One thing led to and soon a sort of war was under way. The neighbors would pound on her walls and she would turn up her radio. the woman moved to another hotel where she had a private bath. when the management said she must move to a room without a private she refused. one thing led to another. The hotel called Bellevue Hospital and eventually she was placed in a state mental institution. She was kept there against her on for three stamped with the label It is unclear to this day whether she was really mentally ill or had been committed simply because she not fit in and was trouble The case epitomizes a dilemma facing American damned if they do and damned if they they are finding it a treacherous business to decide which if should be involuntarily committed to mental institutions. It is a matter involving fundamental questions about individual rights and public about the psychiatrist's role in about how proficient psychiatrists are at diagnosing mental and about the general treatment of the mentally ill. It was the dominant topic of the 12th annual meeting of the American Psychiatric Association. Partly in response to cases similar to that of the woman in the welfare some legislatures and courts have concluded not being they are incompetent to decide who shall be committed to mental hospitals. And in the last five the involuntary confinement of mental patients has been sharply restricted notably in New Massachusetts and California Wholesale releases of patients have and therein lies another problem Psychiatrists say that they are unable to predict with any accuracy who might be dangerous and who might not. A California case epitomizes this side of the situation. A 36 -year old man was released from a state mental hospital because he failed to qualify as under a 1969 California law limiting the grounds for involuntary commitment. Soon after his he killed his his three children and himself. He with his rights in the words of Dr. Darold A. a Wisconsin psychiatrist who argued at the psychiatric convention here for a more reasonable balance between realities and legal The issue of who should be confined and on what along with its many and complex was the subject of some 50 papers and talks at the five day convention and some of the presentations drew standing room only audiences. It is an issue that has recently emerged in New York where large scale discharges of mental patients into communities ill prepared for them have caused concern. At its the question is basically one of what constitutes mental and how do you recognize Some civil and psychiatrists hold that until the state of knowledge about the psyche advances to a point where diagnoses can be more the courts and legislatures are better qualified to say who shall be confined and who shall not. They further assert that the commitment of troublesome and eccentrically nonconforming individuals for the woman in the welfare hotel or the hippie son of a middle class couple has not been unusual in recent years. Some psychiatrists noted here that community pressure for the confinement of misfits is often and they suggested that a psychiatrist with a convenient diagnosis at hand would find it difficult to resist such pressure. In many psychiatrists and civil libertarians have been maintaining for years that state mental hospitals are ineffective as treatment centres. they genuinely sick patients often get worse there. Involuntary confinement without effective treatment amounts to jail without they and the courts have agreed.
