This experiment investigated children and adolescents’ personal experiences with psychiatric hospitalization and the effects it had on their mental health/illness. Four participants over the age of 18 took part in a semi-structured interview that looked at their own personal experiences with being hospitalized as a child or adolescent. The interviews were transcribed, audios destroyed, then a thematic analysis was performed to get a better sense of the experiences that the individuals had during their psychiatric hospitalization. It was found that every individuals’ experience was very individualistic, although some of the participants did share a few commonalities. The project focused on the impact the participants felt, resources that they obtained, advantages and disadvantages, and whether or not they recommend hospitalization.
