ive stayed in pysch hospitals (voluntarily) and have noticed there are 2 distinct types of mental health nurses. you either get the 'no nonsense, ive seen it all nurse ratchett' types who make you feel like your wasting their time, or you get the genuinely caring, supportive ones who have a sense of humour, dont patronise you or make you feel weak and pathetic the way the other type can do. thats just been my experience. i think alot of pysch nurses are quite hardened because of what they deal with on a daily basis, but at the same time, that is no excuse for being less than caring.
i pray your situation improves soon. hang in there,
