My local Depression and Anxiety service (DAS) were unable to provide help or treatment as I was too ill and my needs were too complex for their service. They referred me to the Community Mental Health Team (CMHT) for treatment. I attended an assessment where my history was taken but no real details of my current condition or how its affects on my ability to function. I was told I would most likely be referred for psycho therapy but that there was a waiting list of 6-9 months.
After waiting 3 weeks I received a letter to say I didn't reach the required threshold for further treatment and was discharged. This means I'm discharged by DAS as too ill and discharged by CMHT as not ill enough. This leaves me with depression and anxiety that leaves me unable to work and barely functioning but no treatment at all. This left me feeling abandoned and isolated further.
