I heard that there are serious financial and resource issues with state funding and the psych center will be closing in the fall of 2013.

The good news is - we have more whack jobs on Ford Street now than what were in the center, so at least we can point and laugh as we drive through Ogdensburg.

Pay no attention to those voices you are hearing in your head Lil Will Nilly..........there is hope........and music. Besides this is a presidential election year. Jobs and the economy are priority. Our elected officials will stand up and shout for the jobs to stay in Ogdensburg. They may be "wack jobs" to you, but they are our bread and butter of which we build our community upon.

Karma? Crazy town? Welcome to Ogdensburg. Enjoy the diversity.

I can see why they would want to close Trinity as there are not that many patients there but what are they going to do with the chronics that are dependent on the system and have been for decades? I don't think they'll close the sotp facility as it's to capacity and there would be outrage among many if they did plus it's a public safety concern. The children's unit? What will they do with those children? That facility not only serves our area but outlying areas as well. It's much needed.

I hope that if they do let out someone that is not stable that they do go back on the hospital and the doctor that discharged said individual. Some of these patients can never be let out of the hospital! They have been down there for decades and have never been stable enough to be let out. They are a danger to themselves and to others. And about the staff, you should file a complaint. No one should be treated that way especially someone with mental health issues. There are many staff members who should not be working there. They don't care about anything other than getting a paycheck. It used to be that patients were treated with compassion and caring. That's not to say that there wasn't some bad apples in the bunch but for the most part, the staff was good. Go to the board of directors and complain about the treatment of your family members. I wouldn't stand for any mistreatment!!!

First of all, it takes an entire treatment team to agree someone is ready to be discharged. SLPC is a hospital and the nurses and doctors there are professionals. Just like any other facility, there are people that slipped through thehiring process. That doesn't mean its a bad place. As far as closing, we are number 6 in the state as far as success rates go. CY is one of the only places in the state that handles mentally ill children, it will never close. If hell freezes over, and it all does close, they CANNOT just "let everyone out." it doesn't work that way, they'll be transFERED.

unfortunately it only takes 1 person on that treatment team to influence the decisions of the rest. personally i feel the treatment team approach is failing at slpc. they take the advice of someone who has little to no interaction with these patients to decide who gets shoved out and who gets transfered. unfortunately it was my family member that got shoved out and now the rest of my family has to live in fear of their very unpredictable behavior and possible violence in front of our children. it has happened before and i can only pray that it never does again. it took my kids several years to come to terms with what they had to witness from their loved one

I don't think they are closing. its really a sad thing to see some people on the streets that really should be there getting the help they need. their solution, just dope them up and send them on their way. its very sad.

Psych Ceter a job for the therwise unemployable losers where 37.5 hours is a full week even though it is more like 32 hours a week after the three required 20 minute smoke/coffee breaks a day. AT the psych center "work" is an oxymoron.
