Going on the psychiatric ward: Rachel's view

Rachel Oxley

Rachel describes her fear at finding herself in A&E at 1.00 a.m., not understanding how she got there. She has multiple personality disorder and the psychiatrist wants to admit her to the psychiatric ward - a place she has heard described as 'bad'. But when Rachel gets there she finds a place of calm and safety, one that gives her hope that maybe things will start to get better. This is Rachel's story, recreated with new images.
