    Useful information about sections through experience

    Section 2 is for 28 days and on your first admission, it’s unlikely to last longer than that period. Even though the section is only for observation (section 5, 72 hours only) and assessment, which is the actual section 2, they’re likely to encourage you to take medication and force feed it to...

    Residual voices.

    I was reading my old p-doc reports, and one from 2014 says I have residual voices. Well the content of the voices has not changed over the last few years. I wonder if it is true. Does this mean that it will eventually stop? And I will get better? Does anyone know?
