Jasmine reports she needs help because she overthinks everything and thinks she has a mental illness. Intrusive, obsessive thoughts started when she was 14 years old. She reports watching a television show about sex offenders and began to think that she would engage in behaviors she saw on the TV show. She reports thoughts that she might hurt or kill her parents and she is very frightened by these thoughts. She started having suicidal thoughts so that she wouldn't hurt other people and feels the need to punish herself for those thoughts. She tries to distract herself with other thoughts in order to avoid the homicidal and suicidal thoughts. She denies history of self-injurious behaviors or eating disorders.
The pediatrician recommends that Jasmine go to the nearest emergency department for referral to an inpatient adolescent unit. The recommendation is Voluntary Commitment.
Her parents voice concern regarding their daughters willingness to actually go to a hospital.
