Psychiatric Units

Part of the reason why there is a stigma related to staying in a psychiatric unit is because there may be coercion involved when staying at a psychiatric unit. Some individuals are in psychiatric units voluntarily. Some are not. Law abiding individuals who want to leave a psychiatric unit, but are not allowed to are effectively having their human rights abused. I think this is part of what fuels stigma in relation to staying in a psychiatric unit.
