Differentiating Between Public and Private Organizations

The difference between a private funded and a State funded organization is, that a private organization depends on funds coming from people that want to support their cause and state funded is when an organization depends on money coming from the state budget. I chose to look at the difference in Private Mental Hospitals compared to State Funded Mental Hospitals. Every time the state has to correct their budget for the state they look at what they can cut, and usually the mental health service will be one to get cut. So, states have tried to do deinstitutionalization is where it focuses on reducing the amount of patients in hospitals, by releasing them early, to help reduce the need to stay in the hospital so as to reduce dependency. A private hospital will have ways of getting people to donate, not only money but equipment and other services by volunteering. What I could do to help make sure that the care of mental patients is to be involved in any and all programs that are available. To make sure that I keep up on reports and to show what is working and what may not be working. To stay involved in the organization if it is a private and to help with fundraisers. I can go to any meetings that are for the state budget and to be involved in the community as much as possible, to get feedback from the patient’s family, and from the patients if possible. Talking classes that would help me to understand the laws and what is being done to help the mental health population.
