Northern Virginia Mental Health Institute

Name of Hospital: Northern Virginia Mental Health Institute

City, State/Province, Country: Falls Church, VA, USA

Number of Stars: 2

Comment: The staff acted like they didn’t want to be there and I got privileges taken away for no discernible reason. When asking about information on new medication they were giving me, they acted like it was some huge chore to get it and it was hard to leave (meaning that they tried to keep me in when I felt I was ready to leave). There are some facilitators there though that really wanted to help you out.

Type of program (i.e. day program, inpatient): inpatient

Any other identities/marginalizations (i.e. race/gender/sexuality) that could have influenced your stay?: I’m a QPOC
