A member asked:

What is the goal of mental health facilities for their patients?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Keep 'em functioning: Mental health clinics, public or private, offer counseling and medication when appropriate. Some mental health problems are 'curable'; others are 'manageable'. In either case, the goal of the clinic is to keep patients functioning and achieving their realistic goals. Oh yes, and a good mental health professional has a goal of getting a patient healthy enough to not have to come back.
