Psychiatric hospitalization and treatment without consent make a person never want to see another doctor – any doctor – again. Coercion leads to fear, a loss of trust in care and compromises the prognosis. Coercion must be abolished in all health and social care settings and free and informed consent to all types of care or treatment must be the rule in our common interest.
