When I first arrived I was an informal patient, after a month and a half, I was put on a section. I went from selfharming a little to selfharming severely and endlessly trying to take my life. It was very easy to get your hands on something harmful and dangerous and the staff didn't seem to care until it was too late. Eventually I was moved to a secure unit. I do have to say though that the staff did do there best to make your time there 'fun' and did do a lot of activities with you. There was a lot of good groups that were quite helpful. Although there wasn't much talking therapy, when you did get to talk to the HCA's and Nurses, they did listen and take what you said seriously.
