Default Re: How did an inpatient stay help you?

It gave me a chance to disconnect from the real world (most helpful - ignoring my family calls). There was some "attempt" of psychotherapy but it was by students and it switched daily. Groups were good because they were a nice change in pace, but they weren't super beneficial on a psychological level. Being able to be honest about my self harm thoughts was really helpful, even though it meant arguing with the psychiatrist (think of it as a love/hate thing). So, in the end, it wasn't horrible, but its more meant for stability, in my opinion, than growth unless you go to a facility tailored to that.
