Re: kids and mental hospitals

Have you talked to your parents about it? If you get sent to a hospital like that, usually their insurance will pay for at least a part of it. Why do you think you need that kind of help?

Re: kids and mental hospitals

I live in England, so I don't know what its like in America,

but I went to a mental hospital about 2 years ago at 15.

It's not really somewhere you go to "clear your head"
It's more if you've got serious mental issues and you need your medication changed.

Can't you stay with a friend?
