I was admitted to millbrook mental health unit on the lucy wade unit following a mental breakdown and double suicide attempt, I stayed there for approx 2 months.
To me, it became apparant within just a few days that the staff on the ward had little or no training in mental health and seemed to spend most of their time moaning about pay and overtime issues. In my opinion, they spent almost no time attending patiants needs. I was prescribed medication to help relax me but I felt that the staff ignored this and withheld medication resulting in me becoming more anxious.
my recomendation would be to train ward staff properly espessially when it comes to patiant care and dealing with medication.
