I have been under the mental health services for many years and recently have had issues with my neighbours who are causing me to be awake for hours on end and in the past week alone i have had 2 hours sleep.
I rang my cpn and requested help as I feel I cant cope any longer..I wanted to go away for a little while yet Ive been told there are no respite beds available in the borough and my only option would be home treatment team who would visit me daily like before but my problem is my home! so I needed to get out not stay in any longer.
I was told that she could book me for admission for a week maybe two but that I wouldnt like it as there is a long wait and not many beds and I have to be assessed first...I requested to see the psychiatrist but am still waiting to hear about respite care as i just need away from here. Barnet decided to close Kaya House as it was no longer needed but it obviously is!!! In my opinion DSU is a not a suitable place with a drug dealing problem but a refuge like Kaya House is shut forever and where oh where is the alternative that Barnet said they have?? St Anns? DSU? Springwell?
Someone help me find it coz i really need it!!!
