I went to a mental hospital when i was 12 and let me tell you, they only made it worse, i am now pretty scared of speaking too low or too loud, and they also showed us that its dumb to self-harm, which by the way, EVERYONE IN THE ROOM HAD SELF HARMED BEFORE including the youngest there, an 11 year old, and they mostly ruined my and others mental health more.

No wonder my ex escaped from the one he was in... It sounds like to me that they purposefully make your stay there so awful in hopes that it would be such a deterant and serve as motivation to not ever end up there again so you get actual help once you somehow get out, like they did in the work houses in Victorian England - make your stay there awful to give you motivation to not get poor enough to end up there again but not really offer any help in getting you out of your situation... At least in those work houses you could leave whenever you wanted. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Either that or they're really that bad at offering help. Either way it's fucked up.

I wish there was so much more community care for those who need acute care that doesn’t include a locked facility…it sucks the limited amount of options there are or how limited the support services are willing to support those with mental health struggles.

When I was a teen I begged my parents to take me to a mental hospital, cause I was so suicidal I was afraid of being alone, and even attempted a few times. My mom wanted to take me, but my dad told me that if I'd go he would leave home. I'm now glad I didn't go but at the same time it was very hard to find the strength not to do it. It was an unbearable pain. I have BPD and OCD and didn't receive the proper help when I needed it. I'm not American and mental hospitals are different where I live so maybe it would've actually helped me. I only know that i wanted help so bad.

Honestly last time I was in the hospital I faked it out and my parents even encouraged it. I told them I was so upset everyday that I couldn't eat and I lost pounds in the week or so I was there. (This video also seem to only cover 3 day stays. Those are voluntary. If you're put in there it's long I've been there 2 weeks at least.) I feel very close to Anita's situation I ran away and my mom called the cops on me (I was 18 already) They looked for me and when a officer found me he asked to talk I said no and he wouldn't leave me alone So I tried to book it He grabbed me, and I wacked him cuz he grabbed me. He threw me to the ground and cuffed me and told me it was hospital or jail I just do what they say to get out asap, and like they said get help after I get out. That same psychward sent some guys to the girls unit cuz the guys section was full. I've also been sexually assaulted IN PHP and CRU units. Like they said they bring you to this place for recovery but then you can't even do that

As a psychiatric nurse, I can definitely say that there are hospitals and staff that do go too far with patients, just because “well they need the meds so this is the easiest way.” That is super unethical and wrong. There are complete voluntary facilities, I work at one and I have looked PD and ambulance staff in the eye, after a patient they are transferring to us said that they don’t want to be there, that I won’t bring them into my facility because they have the right to refuse. It’s a basic patient right. Now… there are state and federal laws that are in place that we’re kinda mentioned. Yes, there is the 72 hour hold and yes it sucks, but it does not count weekends. Yes, there are some doctors that will discharge patients before the 72 hours is up, but it’s a liability to them so a second doctor most times has to second the order. It’s a liability due to the fact that if the patient harms themselves right after being discharged and it was before the 72 hours, the doctor and facility are held liable. On the law part, there are involuntary facilities that hold you regardless and you have to stand before a judge to get the all clear or you get a mandated treatment order (Court Order Treatment). It’s a process, but for a majority of patients, it is needed. Working in one of these places, I will say it’s tough on staff and turnover is high, which is horrible for the patients because of you have burnt out and over worked staff, the patients are going to get horrible treatment. All-in-all, these places are here too help, but there are some that are better than others. ❤️ From your psychiatric staff community. I wish mental health was just as accessible and socially allowed like any other form of medicine…

Recently, a loved one of mine was taken to the hospital for attempting to overdose. They told us that they HAVE to take her to a psych ward for at least 3 business days. We pleaded the next day that she was okay and it was a drunken mistake, but she had to go. We had no rights. She was in there for 5 days since she went in on thrusday. Only 1 time did a therapist come and talk to her. He talked to her for 5 minutes and never saw her again. She told me she slept through most of the days, did some group art projects, "group therapy", and that is it. They do not help people in there in most cases. Alot of people go crazy just by being in there. I do believe we need psych wards, but they need to totally reform there shit.

Besides the trauma I went thru, the only thing I hated about going to a ward was the cost. It was like $6,000 for my 72 hour hold at a shitty hospital. I’ll always feel guilty for costing my parents all that money out of pocket.

I was admitted to the BMU(Behavorial Mental Unit) last year for severe postpartum depression and postpartum psychosis. I only stayed three days, but I had a really good experience. I needed sleep. Once I got two full nights of rest the hallucinations and voices went away. I was terrified I was schizophrenic like my birth mother. I never want to get that low again. I wanted to end my life and I’m so happy I didn’t.

The worst thing about these places is that a lot of people come out worse than they go in because of the damage some medications can do on the frontal lobe. This whole system is extremely flawed and sad. People really just need therapy during most types of psychotic episodes or mental health issues, not to be knocked out with drugs.

If I may ask, and I hope someone sees this and is willing to answer: What exactly is a psych ward? I am from Germany, and have been to mental hospitals (in Germany) on numerous occasions, by my free will. It was always a really nice stay, it helped me a lot, I only got the meds I already took anyway as well as some plant-based sleeping pills I could take if needed, though I did not have to. It felt like a spa-vacation except my mind was getting the treatments. It helped me a lot to deal with my depressions, which I've had since childhood. So now I wonder if psych wards are just a different thing, that potentially doesn't even exist in Germany, because the stories I heard here make it seem … alot worse.

@Louis D. I believe so as well. I believe I'm quite privileged with the good healthcare, especially towards mental health, though I'd truly hope that it would be normal, and not a privilege. Maybe one day, if we keep advocating good mental health programs, and talk about the issues with the bad ones.

@Tashi Kamala That sounds exactly the way it should be. I'm not even from a country that has bad healthcare per se (Canada), and I do believe that if our system operated more like yours and less like the US's, people who need help would actually seek help.
Tashi Kamala
Tashi Kamala 3 gün önce
@Louis D. oh dear, that sounds absolutely dreadful! In my country, the psychological hospitals have patients who don't want to be there as well, if they were in danger of hurting themselfs or others, but we get to leave the grounds for a few hours a day, recieve visitors, have a TV and often people bring gaming consoles. You only get the meds you need, and only after haven spoken about what they are … and not as injections. Obviously, if you are in danger of suicide, you can't go out during your stay until you got better, and if you cut or do drugs, they do check that you didn't do any of that whilst out and about, but if the food is bad, for example, patients often will go out for pizza, and we have movie or gaming nights together. I always love to see the difference between new arrivals, and arrivals after a few weeks, since they seem much happier. Also we have lots of therapy, on the weekends sometimes animal based ones, and under the week art therapy, group therapy and physical therapy.

A psych ward is like a prison, except there is no trial, no judge, no appeal. You spend 72 hours, a week, a month, whatever. Over the course of that time, you get locked up or tied up to a stretcher if you speak out of turn. If you refuse the medication, big men in white uniforms pin you to the ground and inject whatever they want in your butt, without even telling you what it is. On average, you get to see the psychiatrist for approximately 5-10 minutes per week. There are no psychologists or social workers. If you behave, you get to sit in silence on a plastic chair doing nothing at all from the moment you wake up, until you go to bed, which in my case was on a stretcher in a hallway with the lights on. Certainly, in my case, those stays ruined my life. I developped issues of addiction *after* my stays, because I needed the drugs and alcohol to not think about it.

I was in and out of hospitalization for suicidal thoughts all through middle school and some in high school. I was put on too many meds and was misdiagnosed. I don’t want people to think they shouldn’t ask for help because it is a better option than being alone and not treated at all. But it needs to be fixed, the system for mental health. It did kind of humble me in a way though, because I was so bored I wanted to go back home, which was a very triggering place to be. I’m glad to say I’m living proof that it does get better with the proper help that I’ve finally gotten and also work I’ve put into myself. And I’m so happy that I chose to stay around to live. If you’re reading this and feeling like it won’t get better please trust that it won’t be like this forever. Please reach out for the help you deserve. ❤️

What always shocks me are the studies that find that mental health experts usually have more stigma against people with mental illness than other people, and they believe less in the possibility that people with mental illness can and will get better.

This makes me realise how different and lucky my experience has been with mental health clinics! I live in Australia, and was admitted in a private mental health clinic that my insurance completely covered. I was on 24/7 suicide watch, but all the staff were incredibly lovely. I became friends with a lot of the nurses. The staff was definitely there because they loved their jobs and cared about their patients. I would see my psychiatrist once a week, do my TMS every second day, do group meetings everyday, saw a psychologist once a week. They even set me up with a Pain Specialist to help with my chronic pain and fix up my medication. They took away most of my belongings, and if I wanted them I had to ask permission. They did have to be aware of where I was in the facility at all times. All the facilities were clean and maintained. My room had its own private bathroom, clothes cupboard, tv, and desk built into the wall. They also set me up with support after I left the clinic as well. I’m sorry for people that have had horrible experiences, it’s not ok and you definitely didn’t deserve it!

I understand that some hospitals can be considered good, but I can't shake the feeling that it's so dehumanizing to find a person who wants or needs help and lock them up. Get them therapy, supervise them, talk to them. Don't take away their privacy, access to their own stuff, and their phone privileges. More often than not, that makes it so much worse. I was clean for 5 months and when I had my medication and privacy taken away, I relapsed. So bad. I almost killed myself then and there because the thought of dying was so much better than having to be trapped somewhere with no other option.

I just want to share my experience because it highlights like these stories how screwed up mental health care is in this country. Last year, I had a complete breakdown that had been building for a few months and I got up the courage to tell my mom that I felt like I needed to check myself in. So we packed a bag and went. During the prescreening, I was told that because I had a responsible adult that I would not be able to be admitted. My mom tried to explain that yes she was a responsible adult but not at all trained on how to handle a mental health crisis and they said it didn’t matter. In not so many words, I was told that if I wanted to be admitted, I needed to actually attempt suicide first. We were both completely disappointed because the point of these places is to stop people from harming themselves, not telling them to do it if they want to receive care. One year later I still struggle with quite a lot of suicidal ideation on and off but I’ve given up trying to get help from an institution because I don’t want to be turned away again. There is just so much that needs to fixed in our mental healthcare system so that ANYONE can get help when they feel they need it. And proper help, not like the crap those in this video experienced.

Discharge is so weird. They wanna make sure you have “support” after but literally no one supports you after. My entire family pretends it never happened and when I bring it up or my continuing thoughts they ignore it. Luckily the staff and nurses I met in the wards cared about me enough that I didn’t feel uncomfortable. But there’s times I still feel desperate to end it and know that if I decide to it has to be the end all because I don’t want to be admitted again.

I think the biggest problem is that after you go to a psych ward, and realise it didn't help and you feel the same.... You feel so hopeless, like "If this didn't work, NOTHING will work, nothing will make me feel better, i might just end this all rn"

my first experience with this type of stuff was quite traumatizing. after fighting with myself and having flash backs and hallucinations of offing myself, i snapped and told my mom she needed to drive me to the hospital and get me help we went to the closest hospital and the moment i walked into emergency i was confronted by a man with a police bat-ton and a box of masks, he asked us to change our masks and sign in on a machine. it was so impersonal and scary, we signed in and a nurse gave me a small check up in the waiting room. she told me to wait a little longer to talk to someone. we talked to the desk lady and she sent us to the next waiting room we passed a locked secure door and their were patients and people sitting waiting for rooms and check ups. we sat near the window, though on the other side was an intoxicated man who seemed to be very angry, he was banging and trying to smash the window behind me i saw police and people handcuffed to a bed it was all so much after 4 hours of waiting we got a room. laying in that bed at 2 in the morning in silence it just felt like a morgue to me… the next nurse came in she checked my heart breathing and hooked me up to a machine. after that all she asked me some questions she was interrogating me telling me i was wrong and that it was my fault and that this will forever affect me. she finally left and we waited longer, i just wanted to go home. they doctor came while i was asleep and talked with my mom she told him the truth and that i feel safe going home so he eventually let us leave it was 6 am when we left i had school and was just so tired. this isnt supposed to discouraging people from going but it didnt help me i never even got admitted im grateful for that. in currently on better meds going to school more and getting help it got better. don’t give up please.

I have dysthymia and general anxiety (possible ADD, I'm getting checked), and idk what happened, but it was really bad one day. I had a strong urge to end my life. Like I could almost literally see myself doing it and my body wanted to move on its own to do so. My mom saw me hyperventilating and sobbing so I told her and she panicked so she asked if she could call her sister who worked in the psych ward at the local pediatric hospital. She didn't really help much just said to call the crisis line so we did. Long story short, I went to the hospital and got questioned and everything. Luckily, I didn't get admitted, but I did have to do outpatient group therapy. It was terrible. I could tell by talking and relating with others the therapists weren't exactly experienced. They wanted us to pick a skill we had learned to practice in between each time and if you were like me and a lot of the others, very logical people, in a very cookie-cutter, "all kids are the same"ie emotional, you probably are good to go with a lot of DBT skills. So basically they said and I quote, "sometimes you have to make your own problems." Wouldn't that just cause more distress? they also had us see a counselor and psychiatrist individually. For the purposes of this story, we'll call the psychiatrist Dr.T. Dr.T was very kind, but odd in the first meeting. The second, he absolutely laid into me about why I was the way I was. Why do you do this? Why not that? Dr. T was VERY sweet to my parents telling them I'm okay and everything. Right after him, we had group therapy so I gave my phone to my mom so both my parents were in a meeting for all the parents/guardians and I have no way of contacting them. I ask if he can get my parents or just a therapist, someone to talk to. "No. She's with the others." The bathroom opened up and I whiped my face. So I could try to not disturb others in the lobby, but I had been hyperventilating the whole time. I noticed he was at the front desk and motioned to me. My big trigger is feeling trapped, especially when anxious. I sat outside the group therapy room for 3 hours, the majority of the time I was hyperventilating. The only person who came up to me was the sweet janitor lady with a box of tissues. I'm not going to share names or places even though I want to warn others. I have other stories like this and it baffles me. Why do you go into a career to help people only so you can have power? And why do I and so many others I know have stories like this and the mental health facilities don't care? So many people need help and things like this make them, or I guess I should say us, not want to.

That poem is pretty accurate about what the psych ward is like. I once was forced to stay in one against my will and then they billed me for it. I told my wife "I'm not paying this I'll fight them tooth and nail over it they held me there against my will"

Remember if anyone out there has suicidal thoughts. Just remember they're just thoughts. Don't listen to them
