My brother was released from the New York State Hospital system after 20 years of continuous confinement. It almost killed him outright. It took 8 years, but his physical health, as well as his mental health, suffered terribly after his release.
Please read more about his story and why community treatment does not work for all people. For them, there is an answer to this madness of lack of funds.
If the Medicaid Institutes for Mental Diseases (IMD) Exclusion were to be repealed, those that truly need long term care could receive Medicaid benefits.
