"Not supported by Millside ENE CMHT Leeds"

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

(as the patient),

I am very ill and often feel suicidal.

I have lost count of the number of times staff at Millside have been uncaring and dismissive when I have been in severe emotional distress.

It feels like my life does not matter to them.

Dear Mr Howorth,

Thanks for replying.

I know of others who have spoken to managers about problems within Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust only to find their care became worse as a result.

I shall therefore have to hope that the staff at Millside actually try to do a better job of supporting patients, especially those who feel suicidal.

Yours sincerely,
