How to get a child out of psychiatric hospital ward

How do I get my teenage son out of a psychiatric hospital ward? We admitted him voluntarily 4 days ago for "acute suicidel threat". We thought we could take him home upon request. He seems better to us, but the psychiatrist is unwilling to release him to his parents.

if he is a minor there is nothing u can the hospital regulations is to make sure he is psychiatric stable before he is released even if it was voulntary

They can only hold a patient 72 hours on voluntary. It's the truth I know. Unless your son wants to stay and hasn't told you. Contact a lawyer if he wants out and they won't let him out. Or threaten them with a lawyer. (cheaper) just make sure that you are sure he isn't going to try suicide again. Not that you would be charged but you sure would feel guilty wouldn't you

Oh yeah I know this first hand. My parents signed me in for 30 days I left after 10. I did have to go to junvinile court and prove to a judge I was no longer a threat to myself. I had a physiologist that I thought was going to hang me cause it was court ordered that I see him and I told him I had to start making my own decisions and one of them was to stop coming to see him. He gave me the green flag with flying colors. But I must warn you that while many young people go through rough times and grown out of it. I am bi polar and still proned to depression. I am still here though @ 49 my brother sadly though didn't make it. He hung himself 5 years ago. Good luck you have my sympathy.
