Mental Health Facilities
Long or short-term care inpatient facilities, counseling agencies and therapists in private practice that offer diagnostic and treatment services for children, adolescents and/or adults who have acute or chronic mental or emotional disturbances or for people who are experiencing difficult life transitions or are having problems coping with daily living.
Inpatient Mental Health Facilities
Hospital-based programs that provide diagnostic and treatment services for individuals who have acute psychiatric disorders, who require hospitalization on a voluntary or involuntary basis for maximum benefit, and who might be a threat to themselves, to their families or to others if left in the community or placed in a less restrictive treatment setting. The objective of inpatient mental health programs is to stabilize and then return the individual to the community for ongoing treatment as quickly as possible, and to facilitate the transition by preparing the individual's family to cope with the limitations imposed by the illness and by arranging for other supportive services as required. Included are psychiatric hospitals, state/provincial hospitals for people who are mentally disordered and health care hospitals that have psychiatric units.
