ABSTRACT
The prevalence of mental disorders among minors is steadily increasing in our country as well as in Europe. Contact of a minor with a psychiatric health service, and especially the admission of such a person to a psychiatric hospital as a matter of urgency, however, raises a lot of legal and medical controversy. Urgent admission allows the consent of both the minor and his legal guardian to be bypassed. The article deals with legal issues related to the direct threat to life of minors for psychiatric reasons, and also presents the conditions that must occur for admission without consent not to be subject to legal tort.
