    Hey, I might be going to Leigh House in Winchester. Has anyone been there? I am worried what it'll be like. Are you locked up there? Can you go off the premises for food? Can they force you to eat? Do they search your stuff? These are just some of my questions about it, If anyone can give me any insight I'd be really grateful.

    Just replying to give this a bit of a bump for you! In general it depends a lot on what you're there for and how much of a risk they think you are for most of these questions, also if you're there voluntarily or if you've been sectioned. They will be able to force you to eat and search your stuff if it's deemed necessary but hopefully that's not too often! It could be worth asking in the mental health support society thread if you don't get any more replies here as there's a few people there who've been on adolescent and adult wards in different places, do check the OP first though in case there's anything you need to be careful saying. Hope it works out okay for you!

    Hey, thanks for the reply. I asked at recoveryourlife and got a lot of replies to my questions so I don't need to ask any more. Thank you though
