About the Series

Admitting a loved one to a psychiatric ward can be equal parts scary and intimidating. However, as Dr. Seth Meyers says, "something 'bad' can always lead to something good." The same goes for being hospitalized in a psychiatric unit.

In this series, Dr. Meyers walks you through the psychiatric hospitalization process from start-to-finish: from spotting the signs someone needs to be admitted, to what actually goes on during a psychiatric hold, to life after a psychiatric stay. You'll even learn step-by-step strategies on how to help a teenager who is self-harming.

“I wish I had watched this series earlier. It would have helped me so much with handling my spouse’s stay. We have this information now, at least. And thank you for making it. It’s helping us so much.”
