AVOID IF YOU'RE JUST DEPRESSED
I went in for depression and I was not even offered outpatient therapy. Instead, they asked me loaded questions about suicide which I was not capable of doing to myself. Then, whenever they were having me admitted into inpatient, I repeatedly asked if it was completely voluntary because I just wanted a therapist to talk to and I needed to leave the next day. They assured me this was the case, but once I spent the night with people that were multiple suicide attempts and one that was even homicidal I wanted out. This place may be for some, but if you're just feeling depressed DO NOT GO. You will watch as people stalk from room to room with zombified expressions, and I felt better about myself just as soon as I left that place. I discharged myself and even then that was a process because they had twisted all the questions they asked me about suicide to make it seem as though I were a danger to myself and others. I am definately not an expert on inpatient facilties but I know my own emotions and they may be for some people who feel completely hopeless, but it was not for me. The staff seemed warm upon entering but turned slightly hostile when I needed discharge to continue my life. Again, these people deal with very hopeless and bleak cases so this may be for you, but it wasn't for me.
