A person is committed to MSH for psychiatric care because mental health professionals and the Chancery Court believe that person, due to mental illness, is a danger to self or others. For the patient's safety, the county Sheriff's Department provides transportation to the hospital. People committed to the Chemical Dependency Unit are transported by their families, unless they seek assistance from the Chancery Court for transportation by the Sheriff's Department.
