My wife was taken to parklands hospital after an attempted suicide, by ambulance, two hours later I received a phone call from the crisis team saying that I could come and collect my wife as she was ok now. I was totally dumbstruck, I told them I was leaving my wife and would not be picking her up, they the said your son drives so can you ask him too.
They told me she had been accessed by them an she had begged to be taken in to hospital, their opinion was that she didn’t need to be hospitalised, in the end I gave in and collected her from a back entrance at park lands.
When I arrived I buzzed and said I was here to collect my wife, I was met by a secretary, who said she would inform somebody from the crisis team I'm here to collect my wife, she then came back and told me “your wife’s in this room” (empty room just a mattress on the floor and a bench) and was shown the way out, not even a thank you see you later or if they would be in touch or anything. This is why I don't bother with the crisis team any more.
