I went here last summer in 2022, I thought it was gonna help, but some of the other kids there were constantly starting riots and one time this girl ripped out the cameras and took out the ceiling boards and broke them, the cops showed up, everyone was trapped in the girls dayroom. Idk, just so much drama I couldn't focus on myself and I never had any one-on-one counseling. TW// SH
I literally self harmed while I was there and my hand was bleeding, the next day they sent me home bc they couldn't keep me anymore?? Like I just relapsed?? They kept me in HVR for the night and Kelsey helped me get settled in there. I love Kelsey, she is the best!!
The whole thing itself just gave me more to stress about, it wasn't helpful and my parents agree. Like I was cutting way too deep so I came here, like yes, I did have some good memories of this place, especially when there was a "wedding" in the courtyard and I was the flower person, but y'all need to listen to your patients. Don't keep giving us meds, we can't depend on meds for everything, you guys need some one-on-one stuff, and I'm not talking about talking to the doctors, I want an actual fucking councilor there. I didn't have anything one-on-one, the only time I did was when talking with doctors. Also, when a patient is in distress or crying you should actually fucking talk to them. When I had a bad phone call I was in the hallway crying my eyes out, your fucking workers did nothing, they all walked passed me and didn't even look at me. Julian told me "You can't be in the hallway, please go in the dayroom" like I'm shaking and crying on the fucking floor what the actual fuck. For me, the only ones I really liked there were Kelsey and Pam. Pam took the time out of her day to talk to me about her problems, and even let me sit in a chair by the nurses station with her. She let me show her the pictures I had of my cat, and I got to talk about my favorite book series. Y'all need more workers that actually want to comfort the patient instead of just making them stop cry. God there's too much to say.
