U.S. "healthcare" sucks
"US equivalent of the local mental health hospital"
Most mental hospitals/facilities are closed down now, in part due to idiot politicians and clueless bleeding-heart types thinking it was better for ill people to live "independently" instead of in institutions where they can be <del>abused</del> cared for. (Probably the same mindset that thinks it's better for animals to be turned loose in the wild to die of starvation since they can't fend for themselves, rather than be kept in "captivity", but I digress.)
The lack of adequate care (or even concern) for the mentally ill, is part of the reason that nowadays there's such an incredibly large number of severely mentally ill people roaming U.S. cities' streets as "homeless" people, yet another group that's often the brunt of jokes/abuse/violence/etc.
Aside: it would help U.S. society greatly if doctors would give full physical exams before prescribing psych pills as a first resort. Some of the "mentally ill" suffer from easily fixable medical conditions that are *not* mental in nature; the mental problems are a side-effect of their other less-obvious ailments. But the current U.S. health-care system (such as it is, haha) is about making the big pharmaceutical companies rich via sham "treatments" that mask *symptoms* rather than actually curing people's ailments or seeking the root causes of things. If everyone was actually *cured* of what ails them, big pharma would make far less money pushing drugs, and we can't have that, now, can we. :(
