Comment: While it’s very clean and safe, there’s not much therapy that goes on. I only saw my doctor for a total of less than 10 minutes, and i was there for over a week. The staff kept changing and everything was disorganized. I was in the “high-functioning” unit, which had ‘special privileges’ like having longer visiting hours. No one used my pronouns and every time any of the staff referred to me they used my deadname, even if I corrected them. My doctor didn’t listen to me at all and seemed impatient to get out of there whwnever I tried to say something, he interrupted me. There was a lot of gendered language because it was a ‘women’s unit’.

They took my toothbrush, toothpaste, etc. and didn’t give it back when I was discharged. No one could get in touch with anyone so it was all really confusing and frustrating. But, it was generally pretty chill compared to the stuff that goes on in some other places.

Any other identities/marginalizations (i.e. race/gender/sexuality) that could have influenced your stay?: nonbinary and acearo
