All the staff listen but they have no time because of all the paperwork and computer work they have to do. They are passionate about their work, they're angels but they don't have enough time. Not fair on them or us.
Artists' work is great - all sayings and artwork are inspirational around us. Most of the staff have made a difference when they have time. Support workers listen when not in a rush - they're brilliant and help the most.
The environment is awful despite the hard work of the cleaners. The dorms are awful and a new hospital is needed desperately. When they build the new hospital, have relaxation rooms, art facilities and therapies, trained staff in talking therapies, CBT, mindfulness because this is what makes a difference.
Nicer surroundings to cheer you up but also people who listen and are trained to do therapeutic talking therapies with us.
