Introduction To Hospitals

If you need to spend time in a psychiatric hospital, it does not mean you are crazy or sick. It just means you need some help to stabilize and to stay safe. It may also be a good time to have important evaluations that can help your treatment team figure out the best placement and services for you. However, hospital stays should be temporary, and the goal should always be returning you to your placement. When you are ready, the hospital and your foster care agency should help you return to your everyday life with support and services that will help you feel better, stay safe, and stay out of the hospital.
