Psychiatric Diagnosis

Once a psychiatric diagnosis has been determined a decision can then be made on the most suitable place for treatment. This is dependent upon many factors.

Those that would warrant admission for treatment include:

  • First episode of psychosis
  • Suicidal or homicidal
  • Gross debilitation from illness
  • Lack of capacity to consent or comply with treatment
  • Inadequate psychosocial support in the community
