"Acute psychiatry, Becklin Centre, Leeds"

About: Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust / Inpatient mental health care

(as the patient),

I got admitted to acute psychiatry after a nervous breakdown. I really appreciate the calm athmosphere on ward 1 Becklin centre. Everyone gets a room on their own and staff respect the service users' personal space. The communal areas are very helpful because one can make friends with other service users and help each other.

I am glad that you found the ward environment helpful in your recovery, and felt treated respectfully by staff.
