Wellllllll. Some of the staff can be judgemental and cold and harsh and overworked etc... Depends on how many staff to how many clients I suppose. It is not all beer and skittles. It is not.
>I'd stay permanantly if it were possible. Of my own accord, of course. Take about a year off and live every day there listening to people and trying to help them out wherever possible. It does a lot for people to just have an understanding ear to talk too. At the same time you could share parts of your own problems which in itself would be theraputic. I might just commit myself! Interesting stories though! I've only stayed for three days and they told me to go home....
Yeah. 'Institutionalisation' I think they call it :-)
I have been there.
It is better on the outside.
