How safe and secure did you feel during your psychiatric hospitalization?

In 2018, the mental health organization Mad in America surveyed approximately 500 people throughout the nation about their experiences in psychiatric hospitals.

With permission from Robert Whitaker of Mad in America, Rethinking Psychiatry of Oregon and M.O.M.S. (Movement Of Moms/other Standing up together) in Washington have adapted their design to focus mostly on Washington and Oregon  to have the strongest voices in the redesign and decision making of our mental health systems.

If you have experienced hospitalization, we want to hear about your experiences.

This survey is anonymous and confidential.

We will be using a summary of the survey results in our work to advocate with you for alternatives to hospitalization. However, we welcome all honest responses and want to hear about all experiences.

We will share the results with you on RethinkingPsychiatry.org  and on Howsafeandsecure.com web pages.

Thank you for participating in our survey. Your feedback is important.
