"Far too difficult to access help when you are..."

Tees Esk and Wear NHS Trust recently took over the provision of mental health services in The Vale of York in April. I have been struggling with mental ill health over the past 9 months, and got very little success or support from gaining access to the mental health services in York when it was run by Leeds and York Trust.
Unfortunately Tees, Esk and Wear are no better, having rung the crisis team on several occasions and been told I do need a psychiatric evaluation but then no one ever gets back to you, despite my GP, and employer insisting that I am dire need of psychiatric treatment. Especially considering I have a significant mental health history.
I have absolutely no faith in the mental health services, my health has deteriorated so much because of all this.
I think York could quite possibly the worst city in the country to be mentally unwell.
