  1. I am writing this review from an anonymous account. I was brought here by my abusive father because, after trying every possible action, we came to a point where I cut off social contact with him, as it felt there was nothing else I could do. It was better for my emotional health, and as there was no contact, there was no stress.

    My father took me to psychiatric emergency and told half-truths and exaggerated about my past (created a mental health issue which wasn’t there). I was misdiagnosed with schizophrenia and was given a cocktail of powerful psychiatric drugs (combination of 4 at high doses) and was repeatedly told that I had a mental health problem, when I didn’t have one. Eventually I believed everything what the psychiatrists were telling me about my mental health because I was repeatedly told on a regular basis.

    The abuse from the psychiatrists was unexpected. At first I didn’t understand why they were so keen on “helping” me, and why they got so angry and raised their voice when I said I had no mental health issue. I believe they were protecting their reputation, as they want to “solve” every “case” (not to have an unsolved case on their record under their name).

    The government has to stop this. I understand there are patients who genuinely need help, but involuntary admission as in my case was unnecessary. I lost 1 ½ month of time, and in this period had severe sleeping issues, very poor and unstable mental health and felt sick due to the side effects of the drug cocktail.

    Anyone reading this, consultant Dr. Alaa of ward 42 Gazali building was the one treating me. He has serious issues if you do get on his wrong side. Also has low ego and self-esteem issues. His team in general are dogmatic, judgmental and are not critical (low in independent reasoning). Feels like a group of holy clergymen, not medical professionals. Shame the government funds this.
