    They vary between teams but most of the time one or two will visit briefly everyday/ every few days as needed and talk to you about how you're feeling and possibly give you your medication if they deem you shouldn't be self administering

    I didn't really know what to expect as when I was first with them it was my 1st point of contact with mental health teams. After being in services for a few years I've found that between and within teams are pretty similar in how they work

    Thanks for the reply, they're also my first point of contact... i can't really be visited at home though as i live with parents

    That's fine. Let them know though so they don't just rock up.

    Are your parents not aware of your mental health?

    As for not visiting you, when I was under them they were mostly cool with just a phonecall - they only started visiting me in person when I was doing really badly. I know my keyworker was ok at meeting me in a coffee shop so if they want to see you you could try asking them that.

    My mum doesn't believe in mental health.

    She thinks it's all the way i'm thinking and i just need to change the way i think. I can't really talk to her because i get asked "why are you making me seem like a bad mother" or "why are you making this up". It's irritating but ah well

    There's a coffee shop round the corner so i guess i could suggest that, that would be great.

    What if the crisis team spoke to your mum and explained that your mental health is serious and not made up or related to her as a mother. An external person like that may help her see.

    Keep hearing a high pitch noise and it's definitely just me hearing it cause Daddy can't. And the voices are shrinking away from it, they don't like it.

    I think she'd just get irritated, she's not a rational person lol
    Even with facts, if you correct her she kind of just gets annoyed.
    I told her my school counsellor encouraged me to seek out my university counsellor when i get there and she told me my school counsellor isn't doing her job properly because i'm fine. She can be quite stubborn. It's okay though, i think it'll be fine, moving out soon regardless which hopefully will do me a lot of good.
    Thank you though, home situations are quite tricky
