Paris Jackson to undergo additional treatment after suicide attempt
Paris Jackson may be headed to a longer-term treatment center out of state after her stint in a psychiatric facility at UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles, according to reports.
A source has revealed that the 15-year-old will be staying at least another week, and then she’ll be going to a facility for additional care, People magazine reported.
The move comes after much discussion within the Jackson family about how best to care for Paris. The teen, who has a recent history of mental health issues that include cutting, was hospitalized on June 5 for taking pills and harming herself with a knife.
The source claimed that grandmother Katherine, who has legal co-guardianship of Paris, keeps saying that she’s never had any experience of how to deal with someone in this situation.
The decision to move Paris to a longer-term treatment center – a decision made by Katherine and Paris’s biological mother Debbie Rowe in consultation with doctors – is in part based on Katherine Jackson’s fears that her granddaughter had “fallen in with the wrong crowd” in Los Angeles, the source said.
The facility will include both school and therapy.
