Description

Whether referred to as insane asylum, mental hospital, or treatment center, these facilities were created for the same basic purpose: to house the mentally ill. The first step in any project is to obtain enough funding to go ahead with the project. Next, space is needed as are facilities. Finally, there has to be a way to treat such individuals that have these mental illnesses. Each of these is essential for the other to exist. Without funding there can be no one to treat and no facility to treat at. Without a facility there can be no place for people to treat. Without treatments there wouldn‘t be a project to begin with. Each of these is intertwined within each other and must be looked at from an individual standpoint as well as an entanglement of all of them. The following report attempts to discuss the details of all three of the aforementioned aspects both separately and together.
