What's New in psychiatric hospital


Anybody else get nightmares/ stressful dreams of being back in the psych hospital even years after having been there? 😫 anytime I’m stressed and overwhelmed in real life, I end up having these dreams. PTSD response perhaps? (I’m diagnosed with it). #PsychiatricHospital #Hospitalization #dreams #anybodyelse #PTSD

Driven to Hospitalization by Workplace Abuse #workplacebullying , #Depression , #ComplexPosttraumaticStressDisorder , #PsychiatricHospital

I reported sexual discrimination and harassment roughly two years ago. Since then I’ve been constantly retaliated against. My abuser continues buoyed by the face that I, not him, will be punished. My mental health is shattered. I will be hospitalized probably Monday.

Whatever you do, do not believe the mandatory training that says that you should report things. No matter how badly abused you are. If you do, they will destroy you utterly. As Nikita Gill wrote, “There is no justice in this world.”

One year post mental hospital stay

One year ago, I was escorted by police to a mental health hospital. At the time I was not told or understood what was going on. When I was brought in and finally realized where I was, I was scared and confused. While I knew it was for my own safety for suicidal thoughts I still was angry and frustrated. I was 1,500 miles from friends and family on temporary reassignment for work. Luckily it was only a 24 hour stay and while a ways away I had friends who came along side me afterwards with calls and texts. My boss was also super supportive letting have time off and work then with me returning to work.

Since then I have had two changes in meds and I still have bad days but since moving back, getting on right meds things have been on the up and up. However some nights or days I have nightmares or panic attacks of having police show up and being locked in an area scared and confused. They are less now than they used to be, but some days they really hit and make me wonder I have been fighting these demons in different forms for 15 years will they ever stop

First time posting, second time out of the psych hospital

Hi all, first time poster here. Just got out of a 5 day stay at Laurelwood psychiatric hospital in Gainesville Ga. Much better than my first hospitalization at Summit Ridge in Lawrenceville Ga. I went in for severe depression and anxiety, I feel like this past year just beat the crap out of me. Looking for support and community to help facilitate my healing now that I’m home, and to support others in their journeys. Looking forward to communicating with anyone who is interested! #Depression #Anxiety #MentalHealth #PsychiatricHospital


Distraction suggestions wanted #Depression #BipolarDisorder #PsychiatricHospital

I am being admitted to a psych unit where i will be required to remain in my room until the COVID test comes back negative. This could take up to a week (or potentially longer) so I am packing my laptop (with movies), colouring book & notebook in an attempt to keep myself sane whilst in 'precautionary isolation'. Any suggestions of distration ideas/techniques, etc to help pass the time would be most appreciated❤
