I was an SRN in England and am an RN in Southern California now. I left England in 1981. I have such happy memories of the psyche unit I worked on. The patients saw their pdocs on a regular basis the nursing staff really cared. On sunny days we would take all the patients out on the hospital lawn and have tea and sandwiches. I only had one incident in all the time I worked there and that is when I got badly bitten by a patient. My fault entirely, wasn't paying enough attention (probably had a hang over from the night before) because boy did we party! Am I deluding myself with these memories. What is it really like there now for mental health issues?
