- An "open ward" is a ward that is set up in a mental health specialist hospital without closed management. It belongs to the "Psychology Department" and its real name is "Psychotherapy Ward". Experts believe that the "open ward" set up by psychiatric specialty hospitals provides a new channel and method for decompression, which is worth promoting and promoting.
- People who choose to live in an "open ward" are generally very conscious, and are not really "mentally ill" patients. Most of them just have some psychological problems that are difficult to regulate themselves because of work and life stress or a certain stressful stimulus event. So I came here voluntarily to receive professional psychological counseling and seek systematic environmental support. Psychotherapy is mainly used here, supplemented by medication. Therefore, the "open" ward is different from the general ward of the previous psychiatric hospital. It does not set up compulsory isolation and 24-hour security monitoring, and people move in voluntarily. Since the people who live here do not actually have a real mental illness, they are mostly only accompanied by certain psychological problems. Therefore, their daily living is not monitored and controlled. They usually go to the cafeteria to eat with the medical staff, and they can freely enter and leave the ward. They can go home at any time and their families can accompany them. It really is "when you want to come, when you want to go."
Open ward caution
- Experts recommend staying "open ward" with caution
- Living in a ward can take people out of stress and choose to stay in a psychosomatic ward, to some extent because of the professional needs of the environment. The traditional way of decompression for travel and vacation, although the pleasant scenery may help the anxiety patient to relax, but for the depression patient, because his ability to recognize "happy" has weakened, The beautiful scenery will not help. If you choose to repair at home, you may still be able to avoid interference such as visits and visits, with little effect. In order to alleviate the problems caused by status, status, and social roles in life, professionals can appropriately stay in open wards of professional mental medical institutions according to their own conditions. On the one hand, because the hospital keeps the patient's privacy strictly confidential, it can really pull people out of the pressure of social interaction and work, and realize real rest and relaxation. On the other hand, relying on the diagnosis and systematic guidance of the hospital's regular professional medical staff, it helps to prescribe the right medicine and restore people to their normal working and living conditions as soon as possible. However, the money invested in this "hospitalization" method is also relatively expensive, and it requires people with a certain economic foundation to afford and enjoy it.
Open wards are not suitable for people
- "Open wards" are not suitable for people who are vulnerable to psychological cue
- Although this type of "open ward" adopts the principle of complete voluntary, patients are consciously admitted according to their own wishes, but Sun Yuxiao said that the special atmosphere and treatment of mental hospitals do not meet the 100% applicability principle, especially those People who are highly susceptible to cues are not particularly recommended to reduce stress in this way. Such people often have poor anti-interference ability to the external environment, and it is easy to form the result of "close to Zhu, red and black near Mo". For example, if a depressed person is emotionally depressed and pessimistic than the person in the same room with him, his condition may not get any better, but may worsen. Director Guo Bin told reporters that despite the increasing publicity of mental health in recent years, the "psychiatric hospital" is still a "special place" that many people have kept secret. Therefore, when a person who is extremely vulnerable to suggestion lives in an "open ward", although his daily living is not interfered, and the entire treatment process is purely voluntary, he will still have a vague feeling of "I live in mental illness Hospital, is it a mental patient? " This kind of psychology will make him bear more severe pressure, which directly affects his communication with medical staff and the later treatment effect.
