My husband was admitted to Parkwood in April under a section 2. It was obviously a very traumatic time for all of us but I found my stress was greatly relieved by the professional and caring attitude of all of the staff we encountered, without exception. My husband received excellent care and was treated with respect and dignity at all times. I have no doubt that this facilitated a much quicker recovery from an acute mental health episode than he might otherwise have had. The only negative have is that the building is not in the best state of repair but this will addressed once the new Habour facility is opened.
