"AWP - a frustrating joke"

About: Avon And Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust

First encountered AWP after a S136 and several more times after a half a dozen suicide attempts. I suffer from depression and PTSD on strong antidepressants and antipsychotics for the past year and I just get panned off with 'sorry there's nothing we can do to help' but try these charities for group therapy in destinations I don't know even though I struggle to leave the house, new surroundings and groups.

Or get discharged from hospital by MHLT saying my GP can deal with it to which they have even responded to it saying the service is a joke.

I once had hope that they could help when in crisis but I have learned to steer clear as their joke of a service makes the crisis worse.
