Hello, I am a 15 year old male, I live with my father. My mother is committing me for "anger" issues yet I do not live with her. She is trying to get me sent away for a year even though my father does not wish for this to happen. She has filed a committal already without my fathers consent and I was not informed. My psychiatrist claims that he cannot drop the committal without my mother's permission. How can someone commit me without even knowing what is going on? What do I do? I am willing to take classes but I am not willing to be sent away. What should my father do?
