Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. May I ask, what is your specific mental health question that you would like an answer to in regards ***** ***** situation?
You did not pose a question though. All you said was that your wife attacked you and became more upset when you tried to record her on the phone. So what exactly is your mental health question that you would like an answer to in regards ***** ***** situation?
If you feel that your wife could be a danger to others, especially your daughter, than you can try to convince her to seek help with a psychiatrist and/or psychologist for this anger issue. Anger is typically a symptom of mental health disorder, but it will take a face to face evaluation to determine which mental health disorder is causing this level of anger and then treatment will be approached in that way. In most cases the combination of therapy and psychotropic medications will be needed to help her control her anger and possible other symptoms too, so this is why getting her evaluated by a psychologist or psychiatrist is necessary.
Now if she will not seek treatment than you can have her involuntarily committed to a mental health hospital because she could be a danger to others. There she will receive treatment for her issues and hopefully will acknowledge that she has a problem and will volunteer to accept treatment on an outpatient basis. Involuntary commitment is usually a last resort, so hopefully she will choose to receive treatment on her own free will.
As I said than you may have to go the involuntary commitment route since she is a danger to others. I would recommending contact your local hospital to see if that is an option for you. If that is not an option than I would recommend taking your child and separate from your wife to protect yourself and your daughter. If she is making the choice not to seek treatment than you have to make the decision to protect yourself
