    Default Amy Winehouse's dad in talks with her manager to commit her to the loony bin

    Amy Winehouse Dad Calls For Amy To Be Sectioned In Mental Institute
    by Staff



    Amy Winehouse's father Mitch is seeking to have the star committed to a mental institution, because he is convinced it is the only way he can save his daughter from her alleged drug demons.
    Taxi driver Mitch Winehouse is desperate for the Grammy winner to live a clean and sober lifestyle, and has grown increasingly worried over her erratic behaviour - which resulted in her arrest and subsequent police caution over accusations of assault earlier this week (begs21Apr08).
    And now Mitch wants his troubled daughter to be sectioned under the U.K.'s Mental Health Act, because she has proven she is at risk of hurting herself and others.
    He tells British newspaper the News of the World, "I want her sectioned. The situation is getting out of control. I want her off the street. I don't think being somewhere (in rehab) for six weeks is going to cure her problems. I think it needs far more radical measures.
    "I've been on the phone to Amy's manager in Los Angeles and he's starting things rolling. They are going to be speaking to doctors, psychologists and everything else. Ultimately, it's the doctors who will decide if anybody is sectionable.
    "I've told them (medical authorities) she is a danger to herself. There is evidence of self-harming and she's a danger to other people because she's attacked someone.
    "Obviously as her dad I will try and do what's best for her. Unfortunately, what I think is best for her and what she thinks is best for her are two different things."
    It's not the first time Mitch has expressed his desire to have Winehouse committed - he previously revealed his intentions in January (08), but hospital officials couldn't help, because she wasn't considered a danger to herself Amy Winehouse Dad Calls For Amy To Be Sectioned In Mental Institute - Tittle-Tattle Too™: The Post Chronicle

    I hope he is able to accomplish this. I hate to see Amy crash & burn.
    I'm not quite drunk enough to really care, but is this her violation of her violation of her violation of her violation of probation or her violation of her violation of her violation of her probation????? ~MontanaMama on LL's latest arrest.

    Amy needs to be committed. I'm surprised she isn't dead already.

    ^^It won't be pretty but then, it never is. I hope he gets this done. She's a great talent and I'd hate to see her end up dead.

    How old are these people that their fathers have to take over?

    ^ I don't think she's mentally ill though, she's just a doper.
    I think it's great that her parents are stepping up though, I would do that same for my child (if I had one)

    So would I. Even when you're kids grow up, they sometimes need you and you, as a parent, should be there. Unconditional love isn't always easy.

    She may not be mental now, but if she continues to dope up the way she does now, it may effect her mentally in the long term if she lives long enough.

    she's not mental she's a junkie. Period.

    Junkies need to get clean.

    They have to want it, and if she did she would have done something by now.

    Some don't.

    Drugs can certainly bring on mental illness though. Especially with as many as she does. I feel sorry for her dad, he's been trying to help her for a long time. It must be hell to see your child in such a state.


    On a side note, Amy looks gorgeous in that picture!
