For the past year I have been experiencing difficulties with my mental health to the point of being suicidal and being unable to work. I was advised by my care co-ordinator to ring this line when distressed.
Some of the workers have been really helpful. However, some of the workers are extremely unskilled and overall they give mixed messages. On two occasions I felt dismissed, criticised for calling.
I would be very careful ringing this helpline and I feel it should come with the warning it may be very helpful or could cause damage to your mental health.
Unfortunately I have found the latter to be the case due to inexperienced workers.
