Depression can be debilitating, and the signs of depression are not always easy to detect. Even once you see them, what happens if the treatment is not helping the symptoms? Sometimes, clinical depression requires more than just standard medication or therapy.

If you are depressed or if you have a condition with symptoms of depression, such as bipolar disorder or anxiety, this interview will help you determine if a higher level of mental health care could benefit you.

Research shows that most people who receive hospital or outpatient care for a mental illness return to a functional and hopeful life. A structured treatment program provides a path to recovery.

Check out the original MedCircle series in hospitalized vs. patients. Outpatient care: sheds light on which of those paths is right for you or your loved one.

5 Signs Your Depression May Call for Inpatient Care

  1. I volunterily went into a mental health hospital because I was feeling suicidal. I was treated like I had the plague, the staff were extremely disrespectful towards me and inconsiderate. It took them 3 days to give me my iron pills despite knowing that they were needed, because I had 3 blood transfusions. They tried putting me on antipsychotics even though I have depression and anxiety.

  2. Couldn't finished the video. My ocd was so triggered by the way she lean her foot on the heal 🙈🙈 I'll be back another better day too listing.

  3. I’ve been an inpatient twice. Both times have made things worse. They treated me like a degenerate. I was gaslighted by the staff. They got mad at me for journaling! I can say that without it I wouldn’t be here, but that’s only because I was there until the suicidal ideations subsided and they drugged me up. Do your research when you’re in a good mental place so if you ever need to go to an inpatient facility you know which ones have good reputations ahead of time. Honestly DBT was more helpful than inpatient for me. But I think that has to do more with the providers.

  4. I stayed a few weeks in a psychiatric hospital after a suicide attempt. My experience wasn’t great, and I didn’t find any help. It just felt like a daycare for people who couldn’t be trusted to take care of themselves. I’m happy to see some people in the comments found help, though.

  5. I drove myself to a state-owned mental health urgent care facility. It was outpatient and they hooked me up with therapy and a psychiatrist at a greatly reduced cost. My therapist and psychiatrist are amazing. Those guys saved my life, I don't think I'd be alive today if it weren't for them

  6. NO gluten/dairy/soy/sugar/GMO/food with a label/heated oils..taking vitamins/good oils/minerals…probiotic…LDN..detoxing may help. Zn/Mg/fish oil/evening primrose oil/lecithin/coenzymated B vitamins/Vit D3 5000IU and more may help. Hair test shows good minerals/heavy metals. Suicidal thoughts maybe due to low oxygen in the brain due to low thyroid/low nutrients absorbed/antidepression drugs with Fluorine that block thyroid. Amour thyroid may help and Rhodiola/coenzyme Q10/strong probiotic like Orthobiotic/HCl and enzymes with meals/Nature's plus-Source of life multiple and more may help.

  7. too bad America doesn’t have universal health care… would rather just try my best to ignore my suicidal thoughts than be in thousands of dollars of debt which will make the issue worse anyways

  8. I've been in 3 different impatient programs and a few IOPs. All had good and bad aspects and their own rules. The single best thing about inpatient hospitalization (for me) was the "reset." It seems like something you should be able to do on your own, but it really isn't. With distractions taken away and a schedule to follow (especially having a set eating schedule with actual food and not quick snacks), I was able to breathe and focus on myself. I haven't been suicidal in two years, but I crave this chance for a reset.

  9. That dog is just killing me!!!!! In a really good way. <3 <3 <3

    I'm allergic, and my mental health NEEDS a fur baby. :'( :'(

  10. Serious lack of providers, specialists and mental health in or outpatient programs. My town is one and I drive 150 mi to see a psychiatric nurse practitioner every 2 or 3 month while battling severe depression and anxiety. Been thru dozen meds trying to find what I can tolerate or works and with appointments far apart it’s taken yrs and now I’m desperate and on lithium if this doesn’t give me relief don’t know how I’m going to have the hope and will to make that long drive. When someone spends 10yrs living alone and no friends or family around or at least check in, it’s a very isolated prison to exist in and everything becomes a struggle! Exhausted, isolated surviving seems the worse option from my view.

  11. I have been in 3 separate psychiatric hospitals and they really helped me. I was really struggling for a long time. As soon as I got out of one I was sent to another one, and then the next year, my junior year of high school, I was put in another one. They all helped, but I had to stop pretending that everything was okay when it wasn't. I had to start being honest with myself and others. Once I did that I could actually begin the healing process. I'm now a freshman in college working towards my bachelors in psychology and hopefully later on down the road a masters in mental health counseling. without that extra level of care, I probably wouldn't be here right now. I still have moments of depression and suicidal ideations every now and again, but they're not nearly as debilitating or severe. If you are going through something, there is no shame it asking for help. I did and it saved my life.

  12. It was disgusting and no one was treated with dignity. I was stuck in a chair in a waiting room for more than 24 hrs with one kid detoxing and passing gas, sweating, shaking next to me and another woman’s wound open through her stitches. She had slice up both her arms deeply. No one care or offered anything and acted like we were just there for attention. This was at Strong Hospital in Rochester NY.

  13. Hi, I am Eden Joy and i am a trans woman. I am diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder, PTSD, and my life is very hard living with these conditions. I have some kind of mental retardation ( not accurate just think i do) because i am slow to process informatiin in my head to then make a decision. Most times i need help makung a simple decision. I have been hospitalized about 5 times inpatient. I have attempted suicide several times, one of them rushed to the ER unconscious and almost dead. I hated the nurses who brought me back to life hecause i wantrd to die. I was homeless for 4 years straight this last time and it messed me up bad. I have an apartment now which was posible with the help of Integral Care Austin where i have been a client for the past 10 years.
    Even in my apartment i get sick and suicidal. Last time i was in this kind of trouble i called EMS and they took me to the hospital, about two weeks ago.
    I am under Integral Care's care but they are not helping me with what i need help, they jist help me with what they think i need help, not with what i really need. I have been bringing this to their attention but nothing is happening. If i dont get the help i need i will attempt another suicide and will make sure this time i will die without anyone to know or be able to save me.
    I dont want to live like this anymore. To understand a little more about me chrck out my Instagram account @edenjoymolina where i post what i go through and my artistic Instagram account @ejoysartwork where i post my artwork. Artwork i use to express my feelings in painyings and drawings.
    Have a nice day.

  14. i had a horrible experience at a psycosomatic Clinic. I was there for 10 weeks there after a burnout and deep depression. But I was left alone for the most of the time there, they had massive personnel shortage and afterwards I was conviced suicide is the best option. They justified their clinic with the sentence „it’s everywhere like this“. So ….I don’t need to go anywhere, but to death. Because:if I go to a therapist now and explain myself openly, the law in my country sais, he has to send me into a clinic. So, i can’t go there too. I am alone and will stay alone.
    The sad joke is, that the clinic send me away without any medication, because they knew I could use it for suicide…

  15. 30 days of residential treatment for military members with PTSD and any other co-occurring issues. Followed up by IOP…best ever!

  16. So, I'm feeling that death is really the only thing left to experience and that everyone would be better off without me because I'm always I'll, having diabetes, migraines, depression, PTSD, borderline personality disorder, a weak immune system, etc. If I were gone, I couldn't be such a burden. You're saying I should probably go be evaluated for a bed in a facility where I can possibly get help? If therapy 3 days a week for the past 6 years hasn't helped me, why would further isolation help? I need less isolation and proof that my life is worth something, not to be cut off from the world even further! I live 2 blocks from the hospital. Suicide is just not possible with it that close! I've tried! They're too close!
