has anyone here been admitted to the psych ward? voluntary or sectioned? was it positive or negative experience? what do you know now that you wished you knew then? last time i showed up at the psych unit for an emergency assessment they offered to admit me until my moods stabilized. i declined (only because i had a friend coming to see me from canada and i didn't want to disappoint him). ... my moods have not stablized at all over these past three weeks on the new meds. i see the mental health nurse tomorrow morning and want to bring up the question of admission with her. am i doing the right thing? there probably isn't a bed available... but if there is... what should i do? thx.
