"Lack of support for personality disorders from mental health services in Taunton"

About: Somerset Partnership NHS Foundation Trust / Adult community mental health

(as a relative),

I am writing about the treatment of clients with Personality Disorder within the Taunton and Yeovil, Somerset area who are treated so badly. I write as a on looking relative and am appalled at the way people are treated who have this condition.

Nobody seems to have any idea of the pain these people have to endure and then to be met with so much hostility is incredibly harsh. It's about time that Mental Health Services in Somerset got their act together and change their approach and attitudes towards this group of people who really need their help. It is 'time to change'. It starts with Mental Health to change and lead by example and not to be discriminating.
