"Problems with community Mental Health"

About: Coventry And Warwickshire Partnership NHS Trust / Adult mental health

(as the patient),

I have been sent back and forth from the Community Mental Health Team by my GP several times. I found the service that I received was bad. Waiting times extremely long, the staff I saw were judgemental, service provision for my locality is very patchy i.e. provided during office hours, but there is no out of hours cover.

I feel that the crisis team is an utter joke. I feel that have had no crisis support from these so-called professionals. I have had much better care and understanding from Samaritans.
