    I would avoid NHS hospitals unless you reallly are at the end of your teather - you can refer yourself by going to A&E - they will probably put you in touch with your local mental health team.

    Private hospitals exists - but they are expensive around £900 per night so only really worth considering if you have private health insurance - if you do you will need a referral from your GP. The average stay is 4 - 6 weeks and in my very limited experience they are a billion times better than the care you get on the NHS.

    Try the priory group

    Hi depressedgal,

    Sorry to hear that you are feeling desperate and in need of help. It's a shame that you feel that your not getting what you need from your care worker? Is there anyone else that you can turn to? Another worker, family member or friend?

    You could contact NHS Direct (0845 46 47) to ask the for an answer to your question about self-admission? You can certainly take yourself to A&E if you feel a danger to yourself.

    Would it help to talk on here about how you are feeling? Get some of your thoughts down?

    Take care :)

    What makes you want to be in hospital so much? Have you spoken to your care worker about this- does she agree?

    Hospitals.

    Hi guys,
    I seem some of you are wonting to know about hospitals. You can not admit your self this has to be done my a mental health worker and two GP's or you have to be sectioned by the police under the mental health act. You have to be very seriousley ill and have really serious saftey issuess. I know this because i have depression myself and other problems and CAMHS told my mam that they can amdit me to hospital because of servere depression and axinety and aditory hullucations ( hearing voices). If you feel that low i suggest you go to A&E and they can get somone to come in and talk to you about how you feel and to do an assment and they can tell if you need to be admited to hospital or not. Are you on any meducation or having any other help ?

    Hello

    Hello its good that you are seeing your care worker tomorrow, dont be scared shes there to help and support you remmember to tell her everything about how you have been feeling and whats going on, the more you tell her the more she can help you. Oh right i undertand why your not aloud meducation, If they do give you meducation maybe somome could keep it for you and give you the dosage you need a day this way you wont be able to put your self at risk.
    Good luck for tomorrow though!!
    xx
