20 People Who Have Worked At Psychiatric Wards Share The Most 'Troubled' Patient They Ever Worked With
I worked on a juvenile psych unit. I had to put a girl in restraints that included her head because she was so suicidal and distraught that she was biting chunks out of her own shoulder.
Maybe 3 years later I took a bus to interview for a graduate psych program. When I switched buses, a nicely dressed girl asked me if I was from Colorado. I said "yes." Then she asked me if I worked on a psych unit. It was her, all better. We chatted for a while and I told her how happy I was to see her doing so well. She smiled, thanked me, and we said our goodbyes.
Edit: Thanks for the Gold! I just wanted to let people know that many patients improve.
I was in a juvenile psych unit. A 16-year-old kid was in for molesting his 3-year-old sister. He was court ordered to be there for a period of time. I found out that he was raped by his father. I asked him where he would be going after release (because he couldn't go back into his home with his sister). He told me his father had found a camper and put it at a lake and he would be living there until he graduated.
Yes, the same father that raped him.
His head was so fucked.
