I have been suffering with mental health problems for over the past 6 years, and have been under the care of the C.M.H.T.
Last month I was asked if I would attend a C.P.A. meeting (date to be finalised), i felt flattered that i was going to be included in a meeting concerning my care, as I've never been included before, they also stated that they were going to include my G.P. who is very happy to attend.
I asked what exactly was a C.P.A meeting and was given a vague reply, I asked what would be discussed, as i didn't know what to expect. My care co ordinator made out that it was no big deal, "just a meeting, nothing special".
But this is a big deal..It's the first time that ive ever been asked to be involved in my care. Surely these meetings are for patients to be included in their own care....why wasn't i asked before?
