What she needs is psychiatric help. She should be arrested and sent to a mental health facility. Not necessarily punitive except for the fact that she would be locked up there. But if she completes a mental health evaluation and gets help there will be no criminal record.

I don’t like that there is a stigma against getting mental health. My mental health has been compromised in the past and felt I need to check in to a facility to get help (for drugs). But we see mental hospitals as a disgrace and something out of Norman Bates.
