Now that I think about it...I'll stay out of one, if I can.

Part of the problem is stigma for ex-patients, particularly when you've been labeled a "trouble maker." Particularly in the south, I think.

Lots of issues--social class, sexuality issues, mental illness and treatment stigma, substance abuse stigma, etc.--have combined to make me persona non grata in my area. :-(

The only reason I'm not in a state mental hospital is because of my (newly) affluent parents. Welcome to psychiatry--your "mental health" isn't as big an issue as your social standing, or the social standing of those taking care of you.

Boo! I wish I'd never gone to a shrink :-(
