"Lack of proper care Becklin centre Leeds"
Posted by Anonymous
The Becklin Centre Leeds is so biased against patients with a diagnosis of Borderline Personality disorder it is an absolute disgrace. I was a patient there and some of the nurses treated me in a disgusting way. I was even told that people with personality disorders just want attention for themselves. I felt so afraid and suicidal and yet some staff were downright nasty. I read my notes one day and it had been noted I was attention seeking when actually I had reached out for help as I felt extremely suicidal. It is an absolute disgrace to treat people who are feeling very suicidal in that way and from speaking to other patients in other services in the city it happens a lot. Is it not difficult enough to feel very depressed, frightened and suicidal without nurses being extremely unkind and treating patients in an extremely disrespectful way? Lives are being put at risk by this negative attitude to people with a diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder by staff in Leeds and York Partnership Trust. More training is needed to support patients with this diagnosis who are in severe mental distress. They should be helped not treated badly and their needs disregarded.
