New mental illness

Having to sit in a mental health tribunal today it was decided that Poor judgement was considered by Mr Oyelan a physicist at ST George hospital in Sydney as being a mental illness. The patient was locked up for three weeks and has drugs (lithium)forced into the patients body against his will. I am to understand that drugs being administered by force is illegal.
Battery: the act of battering or beating : an offensive touching or use of force on a person without the person's consent.
What is lithium?

Lithium affects the flow of sodium through nerve and MUSCLE cells in the body. Sodium affects excitation or mania.

Lithium is used to treat the manic episodes of manic depression. Manic SYMPTOMS INCLUDE hyperactivity, rushed speech, poor judgement, reduced need for sleep, aggression, and anger. It also helps to prevent or lessen the intensity of manic episodes.

Lithium may also be used for other purposes not listed.
