I remember visiting my best friend in a psych ward 15 years ago (public hospital) after a suicide attempt… There was NOTHING for patients to do, it was days before she saw a doctor, and the whole place just felt like a prison (but probably with fewer activities). The worst thing for a depressed person. Utterly horrifying.
