Minnesota law requires that clients like Elizabeth Ellis be notified how much it would approximately cost to hold them in a psychiatric facility. This document revealingly notifies Elizabeth that the cost of locking her up would be close to one thousand dollars a day ($982). The notice also states that Elizabeth’s monthly check from social security – which she must live on – would be taken to pay $854 a month. The taxpayers would have to make up the approximately $30,000 a month difference, for the horror of seizing Elizabeth from her home, locking her up and forcing her to have electroshock.
