I went here for 2 weeks in the Partial Hospitalization Program I made plenty friends and I actually met my brother’s best friend’s little sister there and we hang out now but I’m not better and I think I need to go back.
I've been there several times. The staff were always nice to me. There weren't very many groups and no individual therapy. Medication management was primary. I was so depressed I didn't get out of bed. I was seeing people that were not there. So they began giving me ECT. That's been years ago and I still get Ects. Most of my memory is gone. They say it doesn't affect memory that much. That's not true. I'm losing my vocabulary more each time and can barely hold a conversation. I don't know how long I've been getting them. I'm doing better though. I've even quit smoking and taking courses in college. I went to groups outpatient and because I had medicare I no longer could attend or see my therapist anymore. I was referred somewhere. The parking is ridiculous. I use valet at the children's hospital. Patient billing is not good. Can't think of the word. Payments don't show up online. The desk tells me my balance is 0. Yet I have 20 bills at home and get more every day. I love my psychiatrist. I'm back in groups. Dbt is awesome. The clinician is awesome. I'll go there as long as I can.
Awesome place especially compared to other places. I've been to another hospital in the area and other counseling services and they pushed meds so strongly I couldn't function. Vandy took me off nearly all of them and lowered my doses so I could get the benefit and still be able to have a normal life. The only complaint is the parking lot is awful. Often have to park in the parking garage at the childrens. It's frustrating because it's not uncommon to see people park in the psychiatric lot and then walk over to childrens. Of course they can't police their parking lot 24/7 so it's not their fault per se. They do have a strict policy on appointments, but that's understandable. I know primary care drs and other clinics with similar policies so I wouldn't say it's unique to Vandy. Drs want to be paid and not showing up for appt they lose money and it takes available time away from someone else who could use it. I have had a issue before with staff scheduling, but it's so rare in the years I have been coming it' not a huge issue in my opinion. I drive 2 hrs just to come to vandy and won't go anywhere else for my mental health care.
Treatment was good but the people weren't very cooperative
We drive from Knoxville, wonderful kind place. Safe without feeling like jail. It's more like a college dorm feel. Great upbeat staff who enjoy working g with teens. Both impatient and day program were so very helpful and kind!!
I went into Vanderbilt looking half-dead, smelling like dirt and cat urine and shaking like I was on drugs. My responses during the psychiatric evaluation had been simple gestures, all the while staring ahead and not reacting to questions and responses by my mother that should've been quite sad to hear. The nurses were there at all hours, ready to assist in anything I needed. If i couldn't sleep, they would allow me to sit for a while in the hallway and/or talk and then they would suggest at least trying to go to sleep. We were allowed the option to sleep in, and if we chose to do that, they would bring us something back from breakfast. Upon arriving, my only intention was to leave and to end my life, as simple as that. However, through the patience, kindness and recognition of the staff there, I was able to learn coping skills to help me navigate through difficult situations. I'm sad to admit it wasn't my last hospital visit, and the other trip happened only weeks after I was released, but between the two I have been, Vanderbilt made the biggest impact. I felt like what I was feeling was valid, and I had help during group and individual talks to kind of sort through my emotions and learn to let go of the things I couldn't control and focus on making right the things that I did have control over. I have since been a relatively happy individual. I got control over my life again, and I do not think I could have done that without everyone at Vanderbilt Psychiatric.
