Family involvement in treatment

Richmond State Hospital strongly encourages families to be involved in their loved one’s treatment. Families can provide valuable information to our staff about patient’s history and/or treatment. We particularly recommend family members involvement in the patient’s treatment planning process. If a family member cannot be physically present for the planning meeting, arrangements can be made for the family member to participate through a conference call. Arrangements can be made through the unit social worker and/or patient care managers.
