"Unable to get through to my Mental Heath Team"

About: Mersey Care NHS Trust / Adult mental health

(as the patient),

I have mental health Issues and when I try to phone my mental health team it mostly goes to the answer machine. I have left many messages but they never call me back.

Like right now I am feeling suicidal and yet again no answer. What am I supposed to do?

Mental health services are a joke.
