Question by Rebecca: Are there any books(novels) on teed depression or cutting?
If so , what are they called, Thank you x

Best answer:

Answer by Rock? Pugs??
Try “Cut,” by Patricia McCormick.

“Callie cuts herself. Never too deep, never enough to die. But enough to feel the pain. Enough to feel the scream inside.
Now she’s at Sea Pines, a “residential treatment facility” filled with girls struggling with problems of their own. Callie doesn’t want to have anything to do with them. She doesn’t want to have anything to do with anyone. She won’t even speak. But Callie can only stay silent for so long….”

See it here:


“Scars,” by Cheryl Rainfield.

“Kendra, a sexual abuse survivor, cuts to cope with the pain, but she doesn’t remember the identity of who abused her. Kendra makes a friend in Meghan, and falls in love with her. When Kendra’s abuser starts threatening her, she must find a way to face her past and stop hurting herself–before it’s too late.”

See it here:


“Impulse,” by Ellen Hopkins.


“Three teens tell their stories, from a psychiatric hospital after failed suicide attempts…
A compulsive cutter hides a paper clip to dig into her skin. Tony’s drug overdose was triggered by an addiction in which he exchanged sex for money. And Connor is the son of rich, controlling parents, and he survives a self-inflicted gunshot wound after a doomed affair with a female teacher.”

Question by the5500: Whats the difference between psychiatric hospital, psychiatric ward, insane asylum, mental hospital and rehab?

Best answer:

Answer by michele
They are different terms for the same place (i.e., inpatient psychiatric and substance abuse treatment). The term “insane asylum”, however, is quite antiquated. “Rehab” is more associated with substance abuse treatment facilities. “Psychiatric/mental hospital” is usually a freestanding facility that is devoted solely to treating psychiatric patients. A “psychiatric ward”, is typically housed within a general med/surg hospital.
