Comment: Couldn’t go outside, activities were mostly to kill time, nothing was really geared toward mental illness just sort of the idea that we were just unhappy and that arts and crafts could help. I met once with the doctor who diagnosed me in 10 minutes. I received no information about after care while in the program. Because I disagreed with the doctor saying I was a rude person, I was forced to sit in a corner for days, wasn’t allowed to eat with everyone else, and was forced to do mindless busy work assignments about issues I didn’t even have. The only benefit I gained was from the books I read while sitting alone in the corner, not allowed to speak.

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