One of the principal purposes of the Mental Health Protection Act is to provide patients with mental disease the opportunity for involuntary treatment or involuntary diagnostic and hospital observation for ones with suspected mental disease. It happens that a patient who fulfils the criteria of the 24th article consents to psychiatric hospitalization. Such a person can demand discharge from the psychiatric hospital from the doctor immediately after admission. The attempt of protection of the patient’s life can be legally and ethically difficult for the psychiatrist, especially when the definition of psychosis is still not clear. The situation narrowness in the presuicidal syndrome has been looked upon as a psychosis.
