Well... we would actually have to see what lawmakers do. They could all be sent to group homes, they could send them to prisons or wait for them to act up and send them to prisons, they could be sent with caretakers, or they could be left on their own. MentaI hospitaIs are generally pretty bad places, and I'm convinced their only purpose is to isolate people from society so we don't have to deal with the severely mentaIIy iII. Sometimes they act as detention centers for people awaiting trial or when prisons are overcrowded, sometimes they keep minors there while they wait for foster homes or group homes for kids, sometimes you have strict parents who send their kids there because they kissed another girl or didn't get straight A's or what have you and the hospitaI is glad to diagnose them and make a few grand off them or their insurance. There is a ton of abuse, rape, sanitation issues, unethical treatments, lack of consent, etc that goes on in those places, and the staff know very well they can get away with it. There are good ones and bad ones, but overaII most of them are not about actuaIIy treating people so they can get better. There are a lot of people working to either shut down or completely overhaul certain facilities because of the poor conditions there. I personally think mentaI hospitaIs should be closed.
