Referring to all ages (but particularly youth in this case.)
A place that people are forcefully sent to receive psychiatric "help" by unsympathetic staff (including psychiatrists) that don't know what the fuck they're doing, let alone give a shit other than the fact that it's their job.
Kids and teenagers are shoveled in like dogs in a pound. A majority of the time, nothing gets solved...If anything, it adds to your trauma with the horrors of what you see there and how you're treated.

Also, in general, you're told that everything is YOUR fault because friends, family, or societal influences totally had nothing to do with your illness or whatever the fuck landed you, or ANYONE in there in the first place.
It's basically one step above jail.
