If someone has been committed in a mental institution do they have to tell their employer or school? Isn't it the communities right to know who these troubled people are to keep our kids safe?

Nope, key word here is hospital. They are sick not criminals.

Depends if other children involved and what is wrong with that person. It takes a lot to be committed as many are turned away so chances are, people already know they are mental.

It does take lots to be committed and when do, I hope they do cont with the proper meds. I knew a relative that stop taking her meds and still hasn't seen her dr.'s and she was diagnose with schizophrenia, Schizophrenia is a mental disorder that makes it hard to: Tell the difference between what is real and not real; Think clearly; Have normal emotional responses; Act normally in social situations.

Your only comitted if you want to hurt yourself or someone else. And sometimes to get your meds adjusted right. So there is your answer. I thought everyone knew that, but guess not.

If they are homicidal than meds only mask the problem and eventually their body gets immune to it. It's scary these people in our community and around our children. Yes, we have a right to know what these people are capable of.
