Q: psych ward とはどういう意味ですか?
A: This refers to a place where people put severely mentally ill people. This word is often used negatively by most people. Historically, people with mental health issues (schizophrenia, multiple personality disorder, severe bipolar, etc.) were locked in hospitals for “treatments” that often weren’t helpful, and sometimes people would lock these ill people away just because it was inconvenient to live with them 😕 such a place is referred to as a psych ward or asylum and people treat it as a place for “crazies” or insane people.

However, psych wards aren’t all bad and sometimes people really do need them and many of these places really do help!
