"Helped me and my family understand"

About: Airbles Road Centre / General Psychiatry Lanarkshire Community Services / Adult Mental Health Services

(as the patient),

I have ptsd and asd I was put in hospital for a while then I met my therapist from the cit team.

After a few months with her I got use to her she helped me the best she could even though I say I don't like her I do.

She was amazing with me and my family helping us to understand what is wrong with me and now I have had her for about 9 months.

She says she was leaving in October. I was a little upset that she was leaving me but I guess that is a good thing.
