Default Prison Placment: Skyview "Rusk"

When an inmate is being evaluated for a more permanent prison placement, if the inmate has been rendered disabled for depression, would they get sent to the depression unit at Skyview "Rusk"?

Additionally could the inmate be sent directly to Rusk from the jail that they will start out at?


I really appreciate any answers.

Wow.....what a good question. I'd like to know the answer to that, myself. Somebody knows. Be patient.

O.K......no one has responded and so, I'm going to take another stab at this based on experience in the system and what I remember. There are units like Jester IV for example in which I've known of men that were permanently assigned there, but yet they left there and obviously showed up at what ever unit I was assigned to when they made the comment they'd come from Jester IV. So, that's that. Now then, Skyview.....hmm, I don't know. Everybody I've seen go to Skyview was sent for a short stay usually involving a paper moo moo, an isolation cell and a virtual reality experience similar to Alaska in the wintertime. So, I don't know. I get the impression Skyview is a short stay to evaluate someone and see if they're real about what mental health woes they may have. HODGE I think is for those that suffer from mental retardation. Montford out in west Texas is a psychiatric facility, but I don't know much about it. It's also a hospital, too.
