"Ward B2 is like a 5 star hotel!"

(as the patient),

I think B2 is a 5 star hotel!

Every possible facility is here.

I think staff are great and v. professional.

I would like to see more emphasis be given to MH services as I feel we have been the poor relations and it is a stigma.

On a 1:1 basis I think I could help my fellow patients on the wards to be more positive because I have MH, I am an expert and can pass on my knowledge.

I have ideas about raising funds to help this service.

Worldwide stigma is a problem.

Many thanks for your positive feedback about the ward!

As you mention you have ideas about reducing MH stigma I will pass on your offer of support to the ward.

We encourage people to share ideas and want to listen to patients who can offer their expert experience to the organisation and fellow patients. The best way to improve services is to listen to the people who use our services and work together to make changes happen
