    sad story

    i also wanted to hang myself when i was in the psych ward. in the end i sent my "tools" away with a friend. (they searched me when i arrived but left several items with me that i could have used to hurt myself with).

    How sad. I wish this could be a lesson to all involved.

    At my local psych ward in the hospital I was admitted to, they have changed the locks out to where there is no handle. It's a cylindrical mechanism. It has no handle. Hanging is thus avoided.

    There is also a shower rod that collapses automatically if enough pressure is applied. This stops hanging also. It's pretty much foolproof.

    That's horrible.
    I guess it just shows how little weight is given to mental health issues in hospitals.

    Sadly, she wont be the last.
