Alternative treatment settings have emerged throughout the continuum of mental health care, and hospitals have responded by creating integrated clinical systems that provide inpatient care, partial hospitalization, day treatment, residential care, home care, and ambulatory care as part of the parent organization. Psychiatric nurses provide care in each of these settings as well as in community-based treatment settings such as shelters, schools, and HMOs.
