I have had suicidal thoughts for quite a while and am now having thoughts of hurting my family (with increasing intensity and regularity). I wish to commit myself to a mental health facility but I have no money or job, so I figured I would go to a county or state hospital (or whatever). When I brought this up to my brothers, some time ago, they thought it was a bad idea as the conditions at those types of places are pretty bad. I really feel at my wits end and need some help. So can anyone describe what it's like to be in a county mental health hospital? If anyone knows any free services I could take advantage of that would also be awesome. I live in northern California, I'm an adult male, and I have no access to any money at all, if that helps (I kinda live out in the sticks too).
