How long will my family member be at SMSH?

​​The patients’ length of stay is determined by the patient’s response to treatment. SMSH is an acute psychiatric hospital, so, generally, patients stay for two to three weeks. Those patients requiring long-term treatment may require transfer to a facility that provides continued treatment.
