I feel I was a nuisance to the Crisis Team in Taunton when I called last weekend. I was not taken seriously or listened to and almost made to felt guilty why I was calling them.
To cut a long story short I was left even more distressed and went down hill fast requiring hospital care/999 because of self harm and had to call on various different emergency services in more of a panic as if was putting myself and other people at risk, had to go into a psychiatric unit unnecessarily and to be honest it could of been avoided in a matter of half an hour.
It has put me off calling them again because it keeps reoccurring and it doesn't make sense in any way to call them because they do not want to help with things.
