NHS Crisis Teams? Watch
I've had a serious decline in mental health recently. Yesterday I had a GP appointment where they decided I was a serious risk to myself and said I could either go to a&e by agreement or be sectioned and taken forcibly- fair to say I went by choice in my car rather than an ambulance. I stayed in an observation ward for a few hours waiting for a crisis team assessment however it got to 11pm and they were still going to be a while.
Lond story short through some smiling etc. I persuaded the a&e people to let me leave without an assessment from the mental health team.
I'm back home now and alone and i'm getting to the stage where I think calling the crisis team number I've been given may be a good idea as I didn't get any help yesterday and things are still bad. I'm just scared about what will happen if I do call it etc. but I could probably use the extra support.
I guess I could really just use people giving me their experiences or any advice please... thanks in advance
