For any context, ITA is the involuntary treatment act. It means the government can rule trapping adolescents in often abusive psych wards against their will. I was held for 6 months in one of these places, and they just loaded me up with meds and they never helped me. I've been to 3 different psych wards and they don't help, they keep you safe, but that's it. They worsen your mental health and deprive you of free will. It is literally juvie, and trust me I've been there too. Every time I've been released, I end up relapsing worse than before I went there. They either need to fix their system or abolish it. I have endured many traumatic experiences there, from being raped, to being beat up by other residents. Not a place to put teenagers with mental health issues.
