Tomorrow I'm going to a "Mental Hospital"

I made an appointment for an assessment tomorrow. I'm not sure what is going to happen, if they're going to admit me or anything. What should I expect?

They're going to ask you a bunch of questions, one of which is if you want to hurt yourself or others.

I don't know, but I'm sure they will make you feel welcome and comfortable. They will be expecting you to feel nervous, and they are trained and experienced to handle it. Don't be afraid to ask lots of questions. Good luck. :-)

depends what you are going in for.  The fact you are doing it voluntarily they will be more than ready to answer any questions you have and probably ask you a ton.

I spent 6 months in a mental hospital bouncing from back and forth to a residential. However I was 16 and needed it and it changed my life but not necessarily for the better. The assessment is what they will nail with. You control on how it goes. There are assesments that i had to lie on in order to avoid the hospital again. It can help or run ur life. Be careful. Are you a mom? I hope your thinking of your children. Any questions you have I'd be happy to help. I am bipolar and have seen it all in a phsch hospital and residential.
