Psych Ward Reviews is dedicated to hosting submitted reviews of psychiatric hospitals, programs, and facilities. It also has a growing news article repository, and I've been compiling policy, research, and data. The site fills a gap in a centralized patient-based rating system. Its creation in July 2016 was inspired by my friend saying, “There needs to be a Yelp for psych wards." Upon returning home from the hospital, I created something as close as possible to that idea. 

Along with taking review submissions, I have a couple of ongoing projects. My current in-progress policy projects are a toolkit on inpatient care quality inclusive of patient experience, and a white paper on journalistic language around psych ward abuse. I am being advised by someone with academic familiarity in the social sciences. 

The amount of time and effort it is taking to create these resources is turning into nearly a part-time job, and I already work full time elsewhere. In addition, I would love to be able to create real systems change that makes psych wards safer and also increases community alternatives. Donations would assist in site costs, increasing its social media presence, promoting its resources and projects, and engaging in more active public policy work.
