7 years Psychiatric-clinic, what boggles me.

Psychiatric-nurses act as psychologists. They judge you, discuss this with other nurses and write reports in ur dossier based on their subjective (collective) opinion. To clarify, they discuss your "profile" (dossier included) and with that information they interact. The response they get from you during that conversation determines the subjective result in ur dossier and determines what they will discuss with eachother and thus influence the further way in which you will be approached. The next resulting conversation having a tone because they have been influenced by their collegues and their own opinion (psychologists job). Everytime I speak with someone I pick up hints in the way they interact with me. Their interaction is based on my dossier and how they, mostly the nurses, think of me. After a while you lose the feeling of sharing things with them, the trust is gone because of their resulting approach which their style of conversation. Psychologists:
I have had psychologists, who offer me treatments that nurses recommend. Had perhaps, 3/4 psychologists in my 7 year stay. Our seperated part of the clinic had 1 psychologist max, not even during the whole time.

I have had psychiatrist evaluate me based on my psychiatric dossier. (Seen them perhaps, once every month/2 months/3 months for 15-30 minutes). This psychiatrist in particular had several parts of the clinics he had to cover, so was always busy, flying from this part to that part.

Certain people do not experience any negativity as result of this, some may. For some part it might have been my fault, for a big part it wasn't.
Might also differ from country to country.
Just want to discuss.

In my experience they all have a massive opinion; good bad or indifferent. Right or wrong. This opinion then effects treatment and its outcomes. Trying to change said opinions is a futile battle.

You don't have to answer if you don't want to- but what happened where you had to spend 7 years in a psych facility?
