My brothers attorney testified against him and placed him in a mental institution. My brother is begging for my help to get him out or transfered because he is being mistreated in the institution. His attorney found out I was trying to help him, and blocked all possibilities of power of attorney for my brother. My brother said he doesn't work for him anymore. The attorney told my mother about a year ago if we didn't give him money he would put my brother away so we would never find him. The attorney has nearly blocked all access to my brother who is heavily medicated and can not make clear decisions against his will according to his letters. My brother is being abused at this facility and needs my help. What can I do? Where should I start as a patient care advocate?
