"Mental health crisis"

About: Berkshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust / Crisis resolution

(as the patient),

I have attempted suicide recently and am accepted as high risk. The 'crisis' team which do not have crisis in their title don't really operate in that way. Following a serious suicide attempt last week when I came home a couple of days later on a Saturday, I spoke to the team and expressed I felt equally as bad as before. I was offered an appointment on Monday even though I was in obvious distress. I took an overdose that afternoon as I felt I had nowhere to turn and was not able to cope with my feelings.
