The best one I've been to was Zucker Hill at LIJ. They have a new building and an old one. I've only been in the new one in the pediatric unit and the college unit. The staff are really nice and the building is ascetically pleasing with hardwood floors and bathrooms in the bedroom. The furniture is nice and the common area feels like a family room at home. The doctors are really great too. They set me up with my right proper diagnosis and really work hard to make sure that you are stable and ready to leave and that you have proper plan of action for treatment when you leave. I had the impression that they really cared about whether I was happy or not. They also had yoga days, which was nice since I practice. hope this helped some... I don't think that this is a long term hospital although there are some people I was with who had been there for months.

Does it have to be in New York? I assume you want to be near your family and friends, who are in New York. You should definitely research and ask your therapist, psychiarist, or counselor if they know of a care facility (I hate the term "mental hospital"; it sounds so harsh!) for teenagers struggling with depression. You can definitely get a head start looking on Google, but again... I suggest "care facility" or something similar to that, rather than "mental hospital" because then you might find places with four white walls and metal bars.

Best of luck, let us know what happens!
