Mischa Barton Held Under Psychiatric Hold

Mischa Barton Held Under Psychiatric Hold

It was reported earlier today that Mischa Barton was removed from her home on Wednesday afternoon (July 15).

Access Hollywood is now reporting that the 23-year-old actress was placed under an involuntary psychiatric hold and transferred to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Wednesday evening. According to Wiki, someone can be held involuntary if s/he us deemed to have a mental disorder that makes them a danger to him or her self, and/or others and/or gravely disabled. Britney Spears was held involuntarily twice in Los Angeles in January 2008.

Get well soon, Mischa!

@Sally: Isn’t it horrible how cruel people can be for absolutely no reason?

Oh, that’s so sad. Please, please, please get better Mischa. You have lots of fans who care about you!

She looks so odd in that pic, like a voodoo doll with the big eyes and all. What happened to her career anyway? She fell off big time.

Terrible though if what they’re saying is true. I hope she gets well soon. That is so sad to hear.

She such a follower. She can’t even have an original breakdown without copying another celebrity.

Most of the comments on this thread are really disgusting. Don’t you people understand that Mischa Barton is a very SICK young woman. She deserves our sympathy and prayers and not sarcastic comments on “how fat/thin/old/young” she looks.

Come on Tiny Tom Cruise…go help. Because, as he said, he is the ONLY ONE that knows psychiatriy. Go Tiny alien space ship man, go do your thing. YOUR the ONLY one that can help, as you say.

@sweetness: AMEN. If you’re serious about the craft, you study, you do theater, etc. Clubs and parties and fashion will not help you act better.

An involuntary hold usually occurs when someone starts talking about suicide.

23 YEARS OLD >???
SHE IS SO YOUNG.

Everyone should have seen this coming. Where are her parents and friends?

OMG GET WELL SOON MISCHA :(

i hope she gets well soon. no one should have to go through that <3

Its’ Bulimia !!!!

Why are you bitching at Jared? He didn’t say anything mean and in fact said to get well soon to her. There’s no reason to say shame on him. His job is to report celebrity news. Mischa is news. Her fans will certainly want to know she is sick so they can support her whichever way they choose. They sure would be mad at Jared if he left off news about their favorite.

Leave Jared alone.

You guys are all wrong. If she is being held involuntarily, 95% of the time it means the person was suicidal.

If you don’t Mischa being gossiped about then don’t come here to read the comments. Yes, there are some nasty people out there who will say some terrible, heartless things.

I do wish Mischa the best and hope she gets well soon.

I’ve always liked her. Hopefully she’ll get some TLC and be herself again.

AGREE, ” SALLY, ” AND ” RUTH, ” and ” ANNIEFANNIE, “.
I hope Mischa receive’s the help she needs to help her on the road to a full recovery. That would involve her family and a close knit bunch of friends. Since we don’t know what happened, obviously something just went haywire in her brain and mind, and she could no longer cope with pressure’s of life.
She is a pretty young lady, and certainly does NOT look like a woman in her 40′s or 30 ‘s. A slight exaggeration there, don’t you think? We don’t even know if drug’s or alcohol is involved, but whatever the reason, I just hope she recover’s fully and return’s to work happy!
