I am so fed up..........................!
I haven't been well all week and have been trying to get help for relative with mental illness - it's like nailing jelly to a wall; it just seems impossible. I am usually the most upbeat of people, but I really believe that I am never going to succeed in getting the mental health team to assist my relative in any meaningful way. He's not a blood relative, but foster family. His next of kin (identical twin) shares the same illness (schizophrenia). The mental health 'professionals' won't share anything with me for reasons of confidentiality. I'm afraid that people are at risk and given platitudes when expressing my fears. Arrrrgggghhhh!!!!!
On a slightly more positive note: hats off to the police who have actually done more to help than anyone in the mental health service.
Has anyone had a good service from mental health teams?
