Shocking The most frightening place I've ever been, I wouldn't but a criminal in there. Online it makes it out to be a 'nice friendly environment'. Seriously though? It is the complete opposite. They threatened to section me because I said I wanted to leave, when I was still blantently ill and they hadn't given me any medical treatment in the 10 days I was there, but then thankfully transferred to another unit. Half of the staff were clearly uneducated about mental health and didn't know how to deal with mentally ill patients especially the 'nurses' . And doctors weren't much use either, how can a 15 year old be put in there and under go minimal treatment, yet threaten to section someone, appalling. It would benefit young people to be in a nicer environment, communal areas are unpleasant and rooms are equivalent to a prison cell. Food is horrendous no wonder people didn't eat. I felt worse in there and left me feeling traumatised in there as lack of staff meant patients weren't under control. Terrible. 100% never send your child here.
