I think I know what you mean. Many of the patients believed that they understood each other's problems better than the psychiatrists. There was a feeling of 'shared experiences' and a general dislike of the doctors because so many people were there against their will. We never had any group therapy or any opportunity to paint so I can't comment on that! I remember when people returned from ECT they didn't know where they were or what was going on.
