Z tells you that today they were at school but felt alone everywhere on campus. Z felt like Ashley and wanted to see what that would look like, so Z came home and did what they thought was appropriate to feel balanced. You ask Z if there is anything you can do for them. They shake their head. You ask the questions required to assess the need for involuntary psychiatric commitments. Z does not meet the requirements.

 

You see that there is no need for further police involvement here. You encourage Z by listing all of the supports that they have at school, the police department, and from what you can tell, their mother.

 

You go 10-8 and back onto patrol. ​
