Hello, I'm new to this forum.

I'm 52 years old and have been suffering from severe depression and anxiety off and on for the last few years.

I spent my early teenage years in the Adolescent Unit of a psychiatric unit in the early 1970s. This depressing and highly disturbing experience, at such a young age, has had a lasting effect on my life.

If anyone has had a similar experience, I would like very much to hear from them.

I spent 4 months on a locked ward at 17; that was enough; what's the expression? Lock you up, Drug you up, Fuck you up.
