"Not getting help for depression and anxiety"

About: Sheffield Health and Social Care NHS Foundation Trust / Adult mental health Sheffield PCT

(as the patient),

I have been suffering depression and severe anxiety for a very long time. In my opinion, this has not been treated very well.

I try and confide in my doctor, but it’s like they don’t understand. All they want is to get the appointment over and done with as fast as possible and get you out of the door.

I tried citalapram, which did me no good. In all honesty, I have stopped even trying to get help from them as when I do go I walk out feeling 10 times worse. I hear of other people in my condition who are at other doctors surgeries and they are getting the right help and understanding and feel they are getting better.

I’d like to think that my doctor could do the same for me, but as it stands now I have no hope.
