Spent 5 years simulataniosly going up and down the country in different units/wards/hospitals.

Then I have been in and out for 2 years.

I spent 2 years in a medium secure unit, being on 3 to 1 observations with only a matress in my bedroom.

It was awefull. Really really bad.

I've stayed in two before, and on Monday my parents are checking me into another medium-security one. Last year I used it as a step down, this year it's my only step.

no i haven't [i don't need it] but i do know quite a few people who have who all have varying opinions on their time there. i think it depends where you are and what your attitude to it is.

I have been in and out of psychiatric hospitals over the last year. I don't like them. They make me feel like I am in fact crazy - which I'm not.

Re: Have you ever stayed in a psychiatric hospital? - January 22nd 2010, 02:37 AM

I have never been, though I've had a couple instances of ALMOST being sent to one, but I was scared so I tried my best to avoid it, and now I hide everything from my family in fear of being sent away and probably disowned. I do, however, know a friend who was in for his mental health issues, then I have a couple former friends who were in for less than a week.

Around here, the Catholic high school overreacts and put them both in, the one for saying "I'm going to kill you" to someone bugging her on a bad day, and the other one, I forget. Either way, they were in for like, a couple days or so, and their school had thrown people in before for dying their hair funky colours and stuff. The one girl has no mental illness, the other girl has like, mild depression.

I haven't, although my bitch of a psychiatrist thought I needed to be simply because I was having trouble with depression in the mornings, so wasn't going in to school. She forced me to go to the ER, but they found no reason for me to be admitted, which was predictable. My mom STILL doesn't understand why I hate her.

Re: Have you ever stayed in a psychiatric hospital? - January 22nd 2010, 09:35 PM

Yes, I've been in 4 psychiatric hospitals, and admitted 5 times.

The first one was when I was 13, and I got sent to an acute unit, I was there for a month then my mum discharged me.

Second time was when I was 14, I was sent to a private hospital for which I stayed 3 months, then got transferred to an NHS hospital for which I stayed 6 months, so a 9 month stay overall.

When I was 15 I was briefly admitted to the private psychiatric unit for close observation but was discharged after a week.

Then I was admitted to another hospital when I was 16. Much different approach, pretty decent hospital actually. People from all over the country came here. I was there for 9 months (yes that's a long time, but I knew some people that had been there for over a year) in all.

Yes, I've spend a lot of my time in hospitals. But each one has given me something to help myself with. Hopefully i'll be free of hospitals but I'm still not sure about that one yet.

The one I went to was miserable. Just a depressing atmosphere in general. Felt like a nursing home for everyone.

I bet they help some people though.

I've never been in one myself, though my older sister has multiple times. Growing up I feel like thats where she always was, and I really don't think it ever helped her.. Not to say it won't help anyone, but it her case it didn't.

Yeah I have once, It was kind of by choice and kind of not. I got taken out of school in handcuffs to go to the hospital and they asked if I thought I needed to go and stupid me said yes, but honestly if I didn't say yes I probley would still be cutting.

I was in an open hospital for 4 months, although it was open I did try and leave at one point so I had to be supervised at all times and stuff. It really wasn't that bad actuallly, I was expecting something out of one flew over the cuckoos nest, but other than boredom and home sickness and crap food it was actually pretty good.

She said it was horrible. The minute you walk into a place like that, it's like a feeling washes over you, like the grief and sadness of everyone in that building, just dark feelings because it's an unpleasant place.

I did for a few months when I was a kid (I was a very wild, crazy, and psychotic little devil of a child)... I don't really remember all that much from that period to be honest.. Except for the padded rooms... Well that and the shots of sedatives that they put into me...

Change isn't easy. Changing the way you live means changing how you think. Changing how you think means changing what you believe about life. Thatís hard, sweetie. When we make our own misery, we sometimes cling to it even when we want so bad to change. Because the misery is something we know. The misery is comfortable.

I'm probably going to sound crazy for thinking this way, but for the past few weeks I've been thinking that I'd want to go to a psychiatric hospital. I'm not really a danger to anyone, but I honestly want help and I'm seeing someone through my high school for therapy, but it's pretty much once a month. I think that I'd like the constant oppritunity to talk and understand what's going on in my head.

But in answer to the question, I haven't been hospitalized; a friend of mine was evaluated and was probably inches from being committed, but she wasn't.

Sometimes the hospital is what a person needs. This thought does not sound crazy. There were times I went into the hospital because I knew that I needed it. I knew if I didn't go I would end up OD'ing again.

So, if you feel you need it why not talk to your doctor about it and maybe make a list of the reasons why you think it would be a good idea?


As for the question; I have been to a psychiatric clinic 4 times. Each time I was in there for about 2 and a half weeks. It was a different experience each time but it is not something I really regret because they ended up teaching me a lot about myself.

Re: Have you ever stayed in a psychiatric hospital? - February 11th 2010, 12:56 AM

I almost was in 8th grade. My mom actually wanted me to.
I considered it this past winter break. A friend of mine & I actually talked about it on the phone a few times in that week and a half because my depression was so terribly bad and I was so depressed and wanting to cut and kill myself so much. I tried to commit suicide the Saturday before going back to school by overdose. I ended up in the ER at 2:30am & they "evaluated" me & decided I was all right to go home. I almost didn't go home physical health wise, but mental health was surprisingly "okay".

Also a friend of mine has been in a mental hospital of sorts. It's kind of like a "camp" and she was there over the summer and it actually helped her get over some of her depression and learn to get over the rape rather well.

Re: Have you ever stayed in a psychiatric hospital? - February 11th 2010, 03:54 AM

I've been 4 different times. Twice when I was twelve (8 days and 10 days)
I was in an adult crisis center over a weekend in October of 08, but it was kind of a joke and they didn't really help.
And I was in another psych ward this past September for a week. It wasn't a really great experience...but not because of the staff, it was some patients that did some stuff to me. And I didn't feel like I coudl tell anyone. So...yeah.
None of them were really optional. I went voluntarily, yes...but only because I knew it'd be worse if they put me in involuntarily...like, they'd keep me longer.
And, i've gotten through a couple of other psych evals by lying to keep me out of psych wards. I don't recommend that. It doesn't help you in the long haul.



Great works are performed not by strength, but by perseverance.

No, although I always wondered what it was like.

I haven't yet. Although my parents are seriously debating to put me into a day treatment program in a phychiatric hospital. I'm kind of scared out of my mind so I don't know if I'll give in or not.


Whatever it is, chances are I've been there.
If I can make it out, you can too.

When you can't find your way home,
and when life gets too hard to face on your own.
I will stand as a light through the darkness unknown,
I will walk with you, so you're never alone.

Out of curiosity, how unstable do you have to be to be admitted to a psychiatric hospital? I mean, what would be considered "crossing the line?" It's not that I'd ever want to go, I'm just curious because of some thoughts I've been having lately...
