Comment: I was admitted into the adolescent ward shortly after its opening. Things weren’t very structured during my stay there, but it did get better as time went along. The majority of the time was spent alone, watching a movie, or in group therapy. During the group therapy sessions nearly every activity was related to depression and self esteem issues, which for me were not very relevant as i was admitted for psychosis and OCD. Food allergies are taken into account, but the majority of foods were not kosher or halal. Staff was on edge as the ward was at capacity, but generally were acceptable. Visiting is on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The ward is split based on your assigned sex, and preference is shown to the boys’ side.

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

Any other identities/marginalizations i.e. race/gender/sexuality that could have influenced your stay?: I am a jewish trans boy
