Mental illness is usually handled in an out-patient setting.
However, there are occasions when in-patient treatment is necessary.
These can include:
- When an individual needs to be closely monitored to provide an accurate diagnosis
- To help adjust or stabilize medications
- During an acute episode where a person’s mental illness temporarily worsens
On occasion, this in-patient type of treatment must be done involuntarily so the individual can get the help they desperately need.
