    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    hello, K --

    i suspect, but do not know for sure, that once you are released (or discharged) from a psychiatric ward, you have to go back thru the ER to be re-admitted.

    ask the hospital if you can talk to a social worker about your options. s/he will know about the medicare rules and how you might find a better living situation.

    i hope you can get the help you need.
