Thank you

This is a very compassionate, comprehensive and informative article. My young adult son voluntarily admitted himself to care yesterday, and being an individual on the autism spectrum, "perception" and "understanding" do not always have the same definition for him, although perhaps that's the case with many who struggle with mental illness. In any case, this article was very reassuring for me. I imagine most parents are unfamiliar with the ins and outs of inpatient care. And when it comes to the legal specifics from state to state, it can become even more confusing. I will definitely share this article with the staff at his facility, and with him if deemed appropriate. Thank you so much for what you do and how you do it. I hope this piece reaches many professionals, patients and families, and has the positive impact that it does for me.
