I feel I have the confidence to tackle life again

I have been a patient here for 3 weeks and wish to say how wonderful I have found everybody here.

Nothing has been too much trouble. It’s very frightening when you enter the world of mental illness and severe depression, but from reception, doctors, nurses, chefs to cleaners, I have received nothing but professionalism.

I have been on the ECT programme and was initially very wary, but am totally won over. I have had severe depression and tried a number of anti-depressants and therapies. I can honestly say, ECT is marvellous and has restored my love of life. I’m sure there will be ups and downs in the future, but I feel I have the confidence to tackle life again, and can only wish every patient the success I’ve experienced.

Thank you Nightingale Hospital from the bottom of my heart,

Rose
