Seven Hills Behavioral Health Hospital

Name of Hospital: Seven Hills Behavioral Institute

City, State/Province, Country: Henderson, Nevada, United States

Number of Stars: 1.5

Comment: First day in the adolescent unit was a mess. It basically felt like a small hallway with a “lounging area” at the end of it (if you could call it that). The only saving grace was that so many other kids came in at the same time as me that they had to move everyone to a bigger unit which had a courtyard and windowed seating area. The staff felt more like bodyguards and there were few activities. Usually everyone was forced to sit in the windowed room and play half destroyed card games or watch BET television. Blood was taken on the first day without telling anyone ahead of time at around 3 am. That sent me into a panic attack that the techs shrugged off. Food was good, at least, and visitation was daily but only for relatives. The activities were terribly planned and focused little on each individual’s needs. When I requested a talk with my assigned psychiatrist, I was denied repeatedly and not helped at all once I did receive a visit. My therapist said i regressed 3 months worth of progress going there. Would NOT recommend.

Type of program (i.e. day program, inpatient): Inpatient

Any other identities/marginalizations i.e. race/gender/sexuality that could have influenced your stay?: The one transgender inmate there was given no privacy about his gender and was bullied by others for the lack of discretion.
