If you want to take a leave from the mental health establishment where you are admitted, you should approach the mental health professional in charge of the establishment. He can grant a leave to you to be absent from the establishment under certain conditions (if any) for such time duration as determined by the professional1.
If a prisoner who is in a mental health establishment absents himself without leave/discharge, he will be taken into protection by a police officer at the request of the professional in-charge and will be sent back to the establishment immediately2.
