WFAA Report Exposes Abuse Occurring at Private Psychiatric Hospitals

The latest installment of WFAA-TV Ch. 8’s powerful “Against Their Will” reporting project highlights an alarming pattern of abuse at private for-profit psychiatric hospitals in North Texas. The report documents cases involving individuals who voluntarily went to psych hospitals seeking help. Yet, when they asked to go home, hospital staff ignored state law by threatening or dissuading them from leaving. The patients say, in some instances, their requests were blatantly ignored.

The Law Offices of Frank L. Branson has special expertise in this area and thanks WFAA for airing this important story.
