PSYCHIATRIC HOSPITAL

Noun

Psychiatric hospitals are special wards that are designed specifically for people suffering from psychological disorders namely, clinical depression, PTSD, bipolar disorder and other such mental illness. They are also known as mental hospitals and vary in number according to the number of patients in the area. Some people suffering from psychological disorder may require daily treatment, monitoring, counselling and care, so they are designated with the permanent facility care; while others who have low-risk disorders will require short-term and temporary care, the hospitals are thus specialized according to the need of their patients. People suffering from high-risk and serious psychological disorder are prompted to be admitted in the hospitals in order to avoid any harm that they might cause to themselves and to the people around them.
