Psychiatrist Hospitals

I am from Brazil, I dunno what's like Psychiatrist Hospitals in other countries, but in my country is a hell, you leave worse than when you came in. They mix people with depression with people with dementia, schizophrenic, other kind of mental illnesses where the people lose their minds. I live through hell afraid of one of them to beat me or try to kill, I heard many stories. Psychiatrist Hospitals in my country are at an end cause we have now Psychiatry GP's where the people are treated very well, but unfortunately it still exist a few Hospitals where they send us if we try to commit suicide, being mixed with all kind of people, including addicted to crack...

It's like in the UK, everyone is mixed in together. I've complained but my guess is it won't be changed because it's just cheaper. I don't feel more threatened than by people outside though, and there is always staff around.

I have been hospitalized twice. 2 different psychiatric hospitals. It is not that way here. We have our problems, but nothing like that in the ones I was at.
