4 years ago I was admitted to Ridge Lee Hospital almost 10 years to the date I had previously been admitted.
Things have changed for the better- staff and other patients were much less homophobic and my long term partner was made to feel welcome and was involved in all decisions about my care.
I also received good after care from the home treatment team in terms of picking up my life again after a 6 month stay in hospital.
One final comment, never overlook the impact occupational therapists have on the ward in terms of structure and distraction.
