Comment: I was in the adolescent psychiatric ward. It was very invasive, and honestly dehumanizing. The doctors and nurses didn’t believe any thing you said. My doctor second guessed me at every turn and treated me as if I lied whenever I answered a question of his. You are not allowed to talk to anyone who is not family, and the family members have to be approved by your guardian. You have to participate in group therapy sessions and if you don’t then it can take longer to be discharged. You also have to fill out a book that has your “safety plan” and you have to have a nurse or someone approve it, and they can make you change the details you wrote in if they do not like it
Type of program (i.e. day program, inpatient): inpatient program.
