"Orchard Lodge Hospital helped with my confidence"

About: Children and young people / Child and adolescent mental health

(as the patient),

I would just like to thank everybody who works at the Orchard Lodge hospital in Taunton, Somerset.

They made me feel comfortable and safe while I was there. They listened to me all the time and helped me the best they could. It helped me with my confidence and less ten days later I was chatting to all the other patients there as if I had been there for months.

Thank You.
