I haven’t but I have to imagine it could be dangerous. I wouldn’t want to be on one. Mixing criminal elements with mental illness might create a group of people I might want to avoid.

what do you mean by forensic? i don’t understand, i’ve been transported from jail to state behavioural hospital, my crime? walking past a cop who wanted to question me and arrest me, who subsequently had to tackle me and charge me with resisting arrest and send me to jail, like he wanted to from the jump.

anyways in the behavioral hospital there was only one guy who was any trouble, everybody else was behaved, the one guy who was trouble had this delusion he was a famous rapper and was always trying to pick fights with staff and patients and rapping generally being a delusional person, young guy in his 20’s. he wasn’t allowed off the floor and had no priviledges like playing basketball, internet time, or working out etc. in fact it was the nicest hospital i’ve even been in except for that one guy who you had to tip toe around.

also i will say all my hospitalizations have been involuntary, i can’t tell you how stupid it is to mix involuntary patients with voluntary patients. police bring me in and everybody thinks im a criminal, i would rather be with real criminals than regular people who are there voluntarily. that is if im going to be there involuntarily, which isnt the case anymore.

During my 5 months in jail I was denied medication. One month prior to my hearing, they transferred me to a mental hospital where they started giving me my meds finally. I guess it was a hospital for the criminally insane. I learned how to play spades really good there, but was still semi psychotic. They transferred me back and my mom dropped the charge as planned and I got out and honestly couldn’t face it again, 24/7 unmedicated in solitary eroded my sanity.

Please define forensic mental health ward thank you

It was horrible.

They did have a food party that was fun, but some of the other people in there were completely out of their minds

Everything was cased in perspex and you could only go outside gardening when it was time

It was more like a prison than a hospital for obvious reasons

I got sexually assaulted there by this weird guy and after that I’d regained some of my faculties and they sent me back to the regular wards

Luckily I was only there for a couple of weeks.

I was only just turned 18 when I got sent there
