I have been suffering from anxiety and panic attacks on and off for around 5 years now. Previously I had been seen by CAHMS, who were really good and helped me a lot. Now I am over 18 I have been trying to get treatment through the adult services. I have now been waiting for treatment for basically a year, I first saw somebody from 'lets talk, wellbeing' who decided they couldn't help me and I needed more intense treatment, so around Spring time I was referred to the Community Mental Health Team. I had an assessment in the Summer, and hadn't seen anyone since the end of Summer which was just a 'check up' to see how I was getting on.
I then received a letter which came across as what I thought would be the start of the treatment, but actually it was more of an appointment to see if I was 'eligible' I think was the word that was used. Which I thought was already established and I found this rather rude and like they where almost treating my illness as some kind of joke. The result of this appointment is that I've been placed on yet another 8+ week waiting list (probably about the 5th one this year).
