Can I be detained if compliant on medication

Expert:  Jo C. replied 2 years ago.
Yes, I'm afraid.
S2 is for assessment which is obviously something that they might need to do whilst detained rather than in the community.
Also, medication alone is often not sufficient to manage the risks presented to the community and to the individual.
Sorry if that is bad news.
Can I clarify anything for you?
