Ep. 012 – The Value of Mental Health Facilities

Ever wondered the purpose for mental health facilities? Maybe you are thinking about sending a loved one to a mental health facility but you aren’t sure if it is beneficial to the situation. Or maybe you opted to send a loved one to a mental health facility but were displeased with the result. 

This week, I am talking about the value of mental health facilities and how they operate. There are common misconceptions of how mental health facilities operate and the purpose of their care so I explain what those intentions are. I also share a story sent in by a listener of their negative experience with a mental health facilities and how their family member was treated through the overnight process. 

Topics Discussed:

  • The purpose of a mental health facility 
  • How most treatment centers operate out of a business mentality
  • Reasons why mental health facilities decide to keep your loved one
