A traditional psych ward is a ward within a hospital that houses psychiatric patients. Traditionally patients on a psych ward will be housed in a large room with multiple beds allowing for minimal privacy.

In the US and many other developed countries places referred to as psych wards are actually psychiatric units, psychiatric departments, or psychiatric hospitals. Patients in these places are typically housed in individual rooms or with 1-3 roommates, rather than on a traditional ward.

Referring to all ages (but particularly youth in this case.)
A place that people are forcefully sent to receive psychiatric "help" by unsympathetic staff (including psychiatrists) that don't know what the fuck they're doing, let alone give a shit other than the fact that it's their job.
Kids and teenagers are shoveled in like dogs in a pound. A majority of the time, nothing gets solved...If anything, it adds to your trauma with the horrors of what you see there and how you're treated.

Also, in general, you're told that everything is YOUR fault because friends, family, or societal influences totally had nothing to do with your illness or whatever the fuck landed you, or ANYONE in there in the first place.
It's basically one step above jail.

Prison with mandatory poisonous drugs and "therapy".
I told my teacher to eat shit and die so they said I was crazy, had me evaluated in the psych ward where I couldn't even go outside. Eventually I had to agree to swallow their "medications", which were really pharmaceutical drugs in disguise. After my evaluation I returned to school and I told my teacher it was all her fault and I hope her pension falls through because she doesn't deserve it.
