I felt i received appalling care from Malham House Community Mental Health Team.
On one occasion I called them in utter crisis - severe inner tension and impending doom. A Social Worker was annoyed with me as it was late afternoon on a Friday. Not surprisingly I spiraled even further down. An appointment with a Psychiatrist left my self esteem plummeting to dangerous levels as he flicked through my files without ever engaging in eye contact and seemed to resent my presence. I was given an off hand diagnosis by Psychiatric Nurse on my first ever visit - after speaking with him for thirty minutes - I didn't get out of bed for two weeks following this. I was told I could do better after an OT visited my messy flat and finally I was discharged whilst ill with severe ruminations extreme lack of self care and in a terrible state without any referral to community support.
I was in a crisis state - my brain had no space for anything but repetitive ruminations, I had severe inner tension.
