The councellor each week says next week youmust put on a pound and then we will see how we go and then tells her mother she must be stronger with her but i am afraid this in not working and i am going to loose her.
OK. Anorexiria in itself doesn't often lead to sectioning. To be honest, at 5st 5ib it probably wouldn't happen but that doesn't mean this wouldn't be a possibility later.
However, if you want a person to be sectioned then you need to make a referral to the mental health team with the local social services. You can get their details from social services.
All you can do is get a person assessed. Thereafter to section a person two doctors and a social worker must agree.
