"Mental Health services"
Posted by Skye21 (as ),
After over 20 years of trying to cope with depression/self harm issues, I finally spoke to my GP about 6 months ago. After being given a few different anti depressants, I was referred to a psychiatrist. After 2 sessions, I was told I probably had some sort of personality disorder. Next visit I was told I no longer needed a psychiatrist or anti depressants, was handed a leaflet on personality disorders and wished good luck for the future! ! 2 weeks later I tried to kill myself! !
I then spoke to my GP, I still have no medication or support of any sort. I find the whole situation unacceptable! !
The main problem seems to be that I have a decent job, if I was unemployed and on benefits, I suspect I would receive a lot more help,
I think it is incomprehensible that in trying to stay as stable as possible in staying in full time employment prevents me from receiving treatment.
