Stacey is going to work in Springfield Hospital, one of the oldest mental health units in the UK, to see what life is really like on the front line of mental health services.

Put “them” into a white box indefinitely and activate sensitive emotion mode to be a creepy entity to someone already dehumanizing everything...maybe just let them run around alone in some wilderness?

Soon you're gonna find me here if this quarantine in Italy won't end. Plus I'm running out of money and my job offer overseas was denied cause they think I'm a positive that's trying to run out of the country.

I worked as a mental health provider specializing in trauma and pediatric behavioral health for 6 years. I will NEVER go back to mental health again. This was in the US. The organization was horrible, the supervisors were horrible, I had a caseload of over 150 clients, working 12 hrs a day, no self care or direction of how to do things better.

The mental health care system needs serious reform. Dorothea Dix may have started that reformation, but her efforts have not been successful. The patients are still being abused

I have had a really bad depression and on medications for more than 2 years now, was about to be admitted for suicide attempt but my psychiatrist thankfully didn't do it because he was my professor and knew if this was to happen my carrier as a doctor would absolutely be destroyed because of the stigma from my colleagues even from other doctors and nurses I don't say that was the right call, things could have gone wrong and I may have taken my life but I'm really glad he did this I have a lot of hard times because I have to hide that I'm not fine and keep up with my classes which are SO HARD even for people without mental illness and if anyone finds out by chance, I have to hear all about how I am so weak and how I should be stronger and stop all these medications that "miss my brain up" which is really frustrating.. I really don't know why I'm saying all this but things are tough especially now during my exams and with the corona virus and being alone all the time with my thoughts is just hard I hope one day I can be to other people the person I need right now ..

I bet it never gets dull working in a place like this one that takes on this line of work has to be very sensible when dealing with people in a ward and one has to get down to their level and understand their mindset with what they have gone through in their life .

I work at a mental health hospital in Israel with children, it's amazing how different it is from what we think when we hear about these places... They are kids like everyone else they just got hurt, but instead of in the body it's the soul and mind and it's so easy to love them! Also the staff are crazy as hell, super fun people😂😂

I wanted to see psychotic breaks, or delusional psychosis strength. Why is it that they never have a psychiatric chart to explain episodes which lead to diagnosis to patients. "When you feel better...." Yadayada. But not at discharge, you have been held at a hospital for eleven days, and have suffered a mental breakdown on a severity scale of don't have this expressions of the staff then. Why?

I've been in a psych ward several times and most people, who work there are really rude to the patients. They often did not understand their problems and sometimes made it worse.

The first time I was in a psych ward was when I was very young, the staff was like these workers. They were all very kind, but as I got older and was back in the hospital they were a lot less empathetic. It’s so sad when the workers just give up on some patients or don’t try at all, I feel like for psych ward workers they need to train them more.

This young generation is picking up where the old generation failed. I see with my own autistic kid, his BT are all college kids. They are doing a superb job. A year ago we couldn’t sit and have lunch at a restaurant with him, now we can.

Guys. I’ve been in a psychiatric ward because I tried to commit suicide, and it did NOT help. I was locked up and I was constantly being woke up in the middle of the night or really early mornings just so they could ask me questions and measure my heart rate. It was the most lonely and traumatic experience. It was TORTURE, I felt like I was in jail. This was the slowest pain I ever went through in my entire life.

I went to the ER a couple days ago (it was my 21st) and i slot my wrists open because I couldn't deal with all the stress anymore. (Yes I'm aware there are better ways to manage stress.) And the nurses were VERY empathetic. However, I'm always compliment with personel because i know they're just doing there jobs.
