I'm currently in an acute mental hospital in the UK and have been for 8weeks on a Section 2 then a Section 3. In ward round this week the consultant mentioned a potential move of hospital due to my risk and ongoing suicidal thoughts. After speaking to other staff on the ward, what he'll be looking at is a locked rehab - I'm s***ing myself.
If I end up in a locked rehab the chance is I will end my career, my marriage is already over (since this admission), my children, who I havent seen for over 2wks, will have moved on well and truly - we arent close anyway.
Anyway what I'm asking is.. what are peoples experiences of locked rehab in the UK - length of stay, therapy/support, routine, number of patients (mixed or single sex wards), visiting restrictions etc...
I'm so upset and dont know what to do with myself as the only person here who knows about anything like it, is nearly half my age and had a very different experience of MH services.
Cheers for any input
