I did get triggered but I was pleased that I actually watched it. I believe that it is a very good series to watch as it helps normal people to understand mental illness a bit more.

As soon as I saw Krystal I thought about Jani there were so many similarities I was a bit confused in that I didn't think she was making it up as she really seemed to struggle but I wondered if this was a common theme?

It seems that things have moved on since I was under CAHMS.
I was diagnosed with psychotic depression and stuck on anti psychotics at 13 and diagnosed with schitzophrenia and put on clozapine at 15!

I'm glad they appear to try other things first now.
Although she did look quite drugged up....



I'm fine! Totally fine. I don't know why it's coming out all loud and squeaky, 'cause really, I'm fine!


Who else is fine?!?!?

I think it was called sectioned and focused on 3 men who were inpatient in Nottingham

Yeah, thats what it was called! It followed a guy that had no furniture in his house who was towards age 60 and used to be a doctor or something-he had bipolar...an african american guy who stopped taking his meds and was at high risk of self neglect, think his daughters were on the show too-he had schizophrenia...and another guy.
I thought it was pretty good when I watched it as like others have said, males dont get much "publicity" mh wise (compares to eds and adolescent fenales with eds...).

Sectioned was good I thought, but it was first shown about three years ago I think (repeated last year), so it has been a while!

Been wanting to post something like a reply and my experiences with the mental health system after seeing dont call me crazy.

When I was 16 (im now 28) I was sectioned under the mental health act and put in a unit with all adults. Closest to my age was about 25. I was kept under close quarters for about a month and after that I had about another 4 months in that hell hole.i didn't understand properly what was going on and medication wasn't really consulted with me, I was just trialed on many different things till they found what 'works for me' I don't think the young adult mental health units existed back then but I could have done with more company my own age and not being treated like a full adult when I'd only just left school.

My experiences with the mental health system since that have been no better ( about 5 in total, vairing in length) with a particular incident in Bodmin mental health unit where I was restrained, and shoved down a corridor then to be stuck with a needle in my ass because I questioned what medication they were going to give me , in front of about 6 other patients ( they objected) some of the staff there were truly dispicable.

In short you have all your human rights stripped from you the moment someone says 'your under section.'

I have NOTHING positive to say about the mental health system.

The OT who was amazing towards me when I was inpatient appeared in Sectioned. Think he must work on quite a few different wards.

Is it wrong to be jealous of them?

I should have been in there when I was 13, I tried to, but my parents worked in my school as respectable teachers and wouldn't allow it.

Is this why it makes me angry watching it? Especially angry at Beth, I don't know why I think she's attention seeking. As awful as that sounds, and as much as it goes against everything I think of mental illness.

I really want to adopt Jill though :(

This was really interesting to watch and I enjoyed the experience of gaining an insight into the McGuinness Unit.

There's only 3 episodes so the series has finished now.

I found it interesting with the guys this week, and how they are typically angrier and more reluctant to talk than the females.

Though with the guy (George?) who played rugby, he suffered from depression and he mentioned voices that told him to quit rugby and stuff. They put him on antipsychotics but I dont think he was psychotic, I think he was suffering from intrusive thoughts.

I'm glad that Beth recovered enough to be discharged though.

I agree with the intrusive thoughts but he doesn't have to be psychotic to be on anti pyschotics,

I dont know if it was because they were boys or because I'm in a different mood but I didn't feel as much for the episode
