Mak V started this petition to Suffolk County and

Mental health awareness month, brings in my story:
As we age, we also come to see how messed up something could actually be vs when we experienced it. I have constantly asked myself if I really should do this or not- but the 2017 version of myself says yes as the trauma that came from this place dug itself inside my mind. It took a few years, but it also took a few years to undo what has happened to me and to many others.  My only purpose of creating this , is to voice out the pain that others have suffered- not my own. My hope is to bring light to the Medical negligence that happens at the Hospital. 

Brunswick amityville hospital in short , is unfit to help any suffering mentally ill personal. It should be shut down or forced to make extreme changes. Mental health is real and it’s a very big problem. The beds on the island are constantly filled and the state is overwhelmed. Especially kids - who were hurt, neglected , manipulated , bullied, drugged, and sexually assaulted in this supposed healing hospital. I am not the only one in the past to have complained about this hospital- but those complains done nothing and still till this day it hasn’t been helped. The food makes you sick, most of the items are expired, the place is dirty , the staff is unquestionably unqualified, Dr. Abid I. Khan the main doctor gives out misdiagnosis just so the patients are extremely medicated. Most patients- like myself had a drug induced mania. Outdoor time is also extremely limited, during my time- I never even breathed fresh air. The environment is like jail, but instead it’s filled with drugged patients who aren’t being carefully watched. 

My personal experience is like a horrifying blur, a memory that now seems like it was a very long ago but that’s because I’m ok now. I was only 16 years old, a person who was suffering extremely from depression and suicidal compulsives for a very long time. I was put there due to the lack of beds in other hospitals. I was then forced on medication that was stated that I shouldn’t be taken, I was already diagnosed previously and requested to be put back on my original medication but was ignored. I was then left alone, in my mania induced drugged state for my whole duration of my stay. My room was a room of 4 other patients, they were also under the influence of induced intoxication. I have been in contact with my past roommates for witness. My room was never checked up on, which is required. Due to that factor, sexual assault/sexual activity happened. I do not blame myself, or my roommates when we were under the influence. I blame this hospital, I blame the doctor, I blame the lack of care for mental health. At the time we were all minors and seeking to get help but that didn’t happen. My only purpose of posting my story here isn’t to seek my own satisfaction but to bring change for the future to make sure nothing like these story’s go on further. 

I wish for this to be changed , so no one else has to suffer. There are many stories , not only mine- and mine was vague and blunt. If you have a personal story with this hospital, please share.
