Parents Guide to Emergency Hospitalization
When a child is heading for psychiatric hospitalization, a parent, too, is in a tough place, and a scary one. Knowing what to expect, and what is expected of you, can help you work more effectively with the staff and be a better advocate for your child. This guide from Child Mind Institute spells out the procedures and rules you are likely to experience, and how to make the most of the situation. This information is also available in Spanish.
