My son was an inpatient as he has a history of mental health .He also has additional needs including Autism .The staff over loaded my son with rules which he could not comprehend , many times I tried to have conversation with the staff regarding this and they took no notice they never took the time to explain anything so he could understand .For instance table rules Eat at a normal pace it is not a race most people with Autism eat as if they have not eaten for a month as it's a sensory thing . Saying maybe if he was not allowed in the sitting room due to one of his disabilities as it's something they do not allow - a person's disabilities !! Maybe a great unit for young people who do not have additional needs but certainly not accommodating for Autism .
