Default Re: How did an inpatient stay help you?

I've been inpatient 3 times. All 3 times were helpful, in getting over suicidal impulses, stabalized and out of a depressive episode.



But I was in a very good specialized psych hospital. We had therapy groups throughout the day, and I met with my assigned nurse to talk, each shift. I saw my psychiatrist for an hour every other day.


About the only downside to it was the lack of privacy and the facilities were kind of run down as it was an older building.


I wouldn't hesitate to go back if I really needed it.
