> I'd like some opinions from people on the board

First of I want to say that I really feel for your situation. I've been following your posts and want to tell you that I'm really pulling for you.
Now about malpractice-I'm not a lawyer but I just wanted to tell you some of my personal observations. Yes, I think you've fallen thru the 'cracks in the system' of mental health, and that doesn't mean that you can't fight back. But right now your priority is to get yourself better.
THAT has to be your focus. It could be worthwhile to contact an attorney for a consultation and initial legal direction, but your energies have to be spent find GOOD mental health care and believe me, being involved in any legal action can be very physically and emotionally draining. Also, I personally found that having 'my case' discussed in public (court) felt like more abuse. A key component for me to survive court (divorce) was having a doctor that I could trust and believe that he would protect me. Remember, the opposing side will have doctors examine and testify against you. In the meantime, keep documentation and journal-just in case. I definitely agree that you should take a third party with you to the hospital when admitted - I think having someone else there will help clarify things, and keep focused.
Just my thoughts-please take care-one day,one hour at a time. a supporter
