"Richmond royal is the worst place"

I was under them a few years ago and they did nothing I was forced to go back under them 2 years ago and I have to say they are the worst I have ever seen they are unhelpful they never listren to want is being said the think they can tell u what to do and if u don't then they course a problem if u don't fit in to a team then they force u in one to meet the teams even if u don't have the diagnosis that they want u to have it made a complaint last year and got a letter apologise for they failure and yet they still have not changed and is still failing me in may way when asking for a discharged u get told a lot of rubbish to try to stop u for doing so I would strongly recommend that u go some where else cos they will only make ur life worst and if ur suicidal then go to the hospital please don't go there for help because they will not give u it and u will leave worst then u went in
