“….it is widely acknowledged that involuntary hospitalization often increases the likelihood of someone attempting suicide again.” What a terribly sad–and frightening–statement, and one that I totally agree with. I do not, however, think that lack of privacy per se is the problem. The lack of dignity that is evident in lack of privacy is at the root of the problem. My article “For People in Psychiatric Hospitals, Dignity Can Be Life-Saving” explains my beliefs in this regard https://themighty.com/2020/12/psychiatric-hospital-dignity-after-suicide-attempt/ At the heart of the issue is “self-determination theory,” which says that people’s need for competence, connection and autonomy must be fulfilled if they are to grow and change. The article details how these needs are not being met during forced “incarceration” in a psychiatric hospital.
