"lack of support in mental health"
Posted by worn out (as ),
There are not enough community mental health workers to assist people with mental health problems in this trust in the Stockport area. It can take months for a worker to be allocated to someone who is in need, too long to be effective or to make a relationship when it is most needed. Services for carers in the community are poor, even though I am well versed in using the NHS, I have not been able to access urgent help or support as a carer when my relative was suddenly ill again . I have very little confidence in the service and feel sad and frustrated that mental health services in Stockport are given so little priority or managed so poorly.
