"Unhappy with care for children's mental health"

About: Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust / Child and adolescent mental health

(as a carer),

I live with my partner and daughters. One of the girls has severe mental health issues because of her past. She has been seen by 3 doctors and numerous nurses within CAMHS. We were told by one that she had a fear of being abandoned, and then unbelievably, the doctor abandoned her! One of the other doctors just keeps giving her different drugs that don't seem to work. We feel that she is being dumped in a few months, when she is 18, with no prospect of any help. Her illness has pushed the whole family to breaking point. It seems that no one will help our family.
