I was experiencing Depression, minor addiction, and severe general anxiety. I had to leave my job, my apartment my circle of friends. I couldn't sleep or eat or face the world. Walking to the shop felt like I was wearing my problems and everyone could see. Paranoia, substance abuse. I spent 5 weeks in St. Columbus, I've been seeing Joanne and Fergal since, took part in 6 weeks stress management course. Art class with OT. The stress management class and counselling were good. The mental health service changed my life.
My only suggestions for improvements are that I think some of the nurses could have been more supportive and the food could be healthier.
