Planning for Your Discharge from the Psychiatric Unit

Discharge from the Psychiatric Unit at UW Hospital and Clinics is filled with emotion. Some people feel excited. Others are relieved. Yet others may feel scared and uncertain. At UW Health, we would like you to know that your success at home is important to us. We want to help you to make a smooth transition back to your home and community.
These questions will guide you through the process of leaving the hospital after your discharge from the psychiatry unit. Use these questions as a checklist for the transition back to your home. Following this guided checklist will take you about a half hour, but you may stop and come back to a question at any time.
