"No crisis support or help"

About: Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust / Adult mental health

(as the patient),

I know what the truth is and it is horrible and you try ring for help and they say no time to talk in the night. always say we are too busy. and I feel like when they say this I am trash and to go away and don't ask for help. and I don't know why they do this. it is not just because the government have cuts i feel. In mental health in crisis teams and on wards always say things that make me feel I wish I was dead. My social worker showed me this internet site so I could write down. otherwise no one listens and people die and other people are too scared to ask for help as the wards are very frightening. I am always scared and I shouldn't be as they are meant to help me. My social worker is a lovely person but my social worker can't get them either or a hospital bed when I am very ill.

I wish someone would do something, make it right because when you are ill it is frightening and then no one can help you and the ambulance and the police come but no one from crisis teams come to you in the night.
