"Prevented sucide and help me to get well"

I was in here after several attempts to take my life and I needed to be somewhere safe and somewhere where I was being looked after 24-7. The staff were brilliant as were the Drs. I didn't like sharing a room but that's just how I am as I'm scared of other easily but once I got to know some of the others through activities we did and having lunch together I felt ok about it then. The food was a bit rubbish but you can order takeaways or have friends bring in food which was good. They got all my medication right and when I did eventually leave I was ready to try and deal with my issues with the help of the crisis team and nurse etc.
