Please note that anything said here is not private or confidential, as this is a public forum. Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. If your son is a suicide risk than he can be involuntarily committed no matter what his age is. Involuntary commitment is meant to protect individuals that have a strong desire to harm themselves, so if you call 911 than the police will escort him to the hospital where he will be involuntarily committed for his own safety.
