What do I do if I feel that my loved one is a danger to themselves, or others but will not seek treatment and isn't immediately threatening?

If the aren't eating, aren't seeking shelter, or have vocalized threats of harm to themselves or others, what should I do? I can't convince them to go to the hospital.
