Psychiatric hospitals provide medical care to patients with a variety of mental and emotional disorders. Psychiatrists and other mental health professionals as well as inpatient primary care physicians and nurses are on staff to consult with patients, educate them on and provide them with a variety of medication and treatment options, and provide a range of medical care. Prescribing the right healthcare in psychiatric hospitals is quite challenging, as healthcare professionals must consider patients’ mental health as well as their physical health.
How does a psychiatric hospital serve the public?
Psychiatric hospitals focus on addressing health issues such as:
- drug and alcohol detoxification
- inpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation
- anxiety disorders
- bipolar disorder
- dual diagnosis (this is when a patient is battling a mental illness as well as a substance abuse problem)
These facilities are available to help patients who feel out of control when it comes to behavioral health. They may be in need of mental health services when they:
- feel out of control of their emotions
- are experiencing hallucinations
- have injured themselves or having thoughts of doing so through self-harm or substance abuse
- feel impaired in their emotional capacities to care for themselves
Such facilities may even have focused psychiatric units for patients who are children, teenagers, or seniors as well as those who are facing mental health concerns such as development disorders and eating disorders.
