Why is she in a psych hospital? Why is she being held without charges? Who has this power over her life? And Why? A good lawyer would get her out with a writ of Habeaus Corpus. Transpeople don't need hospitals to "Cure" them. They need medical guidance with hormones etc and benign neglect so they can find their own way in life.
