Can I be forced to go to mediation against my will? What will happen if I don't go>

Why would you not want to go? Is your partner abusive? Mediation isn't relate, it's not to fix the relationship or work out what went wrong, it's to sort out what's next. If my husband will ever admit that it's over I'd go, plus I don't think you can divorce without going.

No
You don't have to go.

If you are unsure then maybe a miam might help you decide if you want to mediate.

thistoo you can definitely divorce without mediation. I am.
It doesn't have to be because of abuse either.

I revently discovered that Yes you don't have to go to mediation but if seeking financial relief you will have to attend a MIAM (fisrt meeting) unless you are exempt (usually domestic abuse). N.b. there is a 4 month cut off from date you did MIAM (or ended mediation) and applying to court for financial relief (form A). I only just made this date and sol did not point this out! Hope this helps.
