"Concerned about experiences of Inpatient Care"

I am a patient at a low secure unit. A couple of months ago I voiced concerns about inappropriate behaviour over an 18 month period I experienced from a handful of staff who work here.
Following an internal enquiry my concerns were seen as paranoid beliefs, that I misunderstood the staff behaviour.
However for the last two years I feel I have fully engaged with all the professionals including psychologists, psychiatrists, CPs, CPNs and attended every ward round, had weekly named nurse sessions and also saw the doctor on a weekly basis.
Nearly 3 months ago I was allowed unescorted leave which went well. That view seemed to change shortly after when I raised concerns about the staff behaviour and it seemed that was when I was seen to have paranoid beliefs.
Following a meeting recently I have been informed I will be moved to a medium secure unit because I no longer meet the criteria where I am. I feel a deep injustice has occurred and raising a concern about staff behaviour has resulted in me being moved backwards and having a setback. I am happy where I am and would prefer to stay here.
