Atlanta Mission is not a medical or psychiatric facility. Therefore, prospective clients must be medically, as well as psychologically cleared prior to admission. If medical and/or mental health documentation is requested, it must be received before a final decision can be made on placement at the Potter’s House. If, after admission, it is noted that the client is inappropriate due to medical or psychiatric reasons about which we were uninformed, Atlanta Mission reserves the right to refer the client to another facility or back to the referring agency.
