2. Oh geez!

An empty room to do a zoom call with a psychiatrist--a stranger--but not allow her to talk to her dad? That's horrible.

These horror stories are exactly why people, especially young people, won't speak up.

It's almost more a liability thing. People are more worried about being sued than investing in what will truly help. Just throw the person to a psychiatrist, put them on meds, let 'em go, and wash your hands of it.

People who try to commit suicide and are hospitalized at far more likely to recommit in the first month after their release than any other time. That makes sense to me since just being hospitalized doesn't teach the patient on how to deal with the life stressor that they will have to deal with when they are released. Hospital is an artificial environment, everything regulated, scheduled, etc.

We need to have enough resources so that we can treat people intensely but in their same environment when possible. "Process in place" is a term I've seen some mental health professionals trying to push for.

Remove the stigma!
