Local Healthcare is necessary for all populations Especially the psych pop.

I am a medical student at Mount Sinai. We closed one of our psychiatric units and replaced it with a cardiology administrative office. A classmate of mine rotating in psych after the closing explained that they had to cram people in the rooms of the remaining center–this included having elderly women in the same room as young men. This is not acceptable. We need more mental health services, not less.
