"You are all angels"

About: Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust / Adult mental health Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust / Crisis resolution

(as the patient),

I've had depression now for 23 years and have managed quite well with medication but on occasion suffer relapses. Recently in July/August 2014 had a particularly nasty relapse that required emergency care. I felt very poorly and suicidal a lot of the time and found every hour of the day and night a real struggle. The crisis team came out to me and suggested I go to St. Mary's house in Chapeltown Leeds every day for a while where I would get the support and care needed to get me through this difficult period. I really didn't want to go but was told I had to. I'm so glad I did.

These highly professional and dedicated people gave first class care and I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone there especially Mick, Maria, Euleen, Faith and the doctor who treated me for all the wonderful care, support and total understanding. And also to my lovely CPN Hazel who visits me at home. You are all angels! Thank you so much.
