Do I need to go to the Hospital?

Psychiatric hospitals are designed to be safe settings for intensive mental health treatment including observation, diagnosis, individual and group psychotherapy and medication management.  It is a safe place to be if you are feeling out of control, having thoughts of harming yourself or someone else, having trouble taking care of yourself or your family or if you are experiencing other serious symptoms. Psychiatric hospitalization may treat a variety of mental illnesses, including depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and extreme anxiety.

Because inpatient care interrupts daily life, hospitalization should be reserved for situations when round-the-clock safety, observation and care are required. Most hospital stays are only long enough to resolve the most urgent issues, from a few days to a few weeks. Alternatives can relieve the need for full hospital care or serve as part of the discharge process and, depending on availability, may include intensive outpatient treatment or partial hospitalization.
