I am an 18 year old female, I have suffered with depression, bipolar disorder and anxiety for the past 3 years, I am currently on medication and seeing a therapist and my GP on a regular basis, However after all of this effort it hasn't seemed to make a difference, I have also been self harming for the past 4 years and I have had 3 suicide attempts in the past 2 years, I am thinking of vising my local accident and emergency and telling them my situation so that I could volunteer to be sectioned as my suicidal feelings are getting worse and my home situation is not supportive. My question is if I am sectioned would I be placed a teen ward or adult ward seen as I only turned 18 in may, dose this matter or would it just be based on where had free beds. I am only asking as the idea of been placed on an adult ward terrifies me and I would prefer to be on a teen ward
