Crisis team!

Posted , 5 users are following.

If you're in the Portsmouth area do not use the crisis team! I don't do complaints except maybe about my life but these people are heartless and couldn't care less about people's feelings! Told them I was going to end my life and they couldn't wait to get off the phone to me, just dismissed me! Well they will see and hopefully won't make the same mistake twice

    I have to be honest it seems like the uk and their mental health system is in need of a huge uhual. Very frieightening and discouraging how difficult it seems to get proper help. And reading this about the crisis team is just disgusting. Your life is of great importance and maybe you cant see how but it is. You are part of a bigger picture. Who ever answered that phone should be fired.clearly they are in the wrong profession. You should have asked if they had a supervisor that you could speak with as you are in a crisis and in need of someone who can help you not ignore you. Sending huge hugs to you and i hope you are feeling better.

      You know... I have noticed that the UK has A LOT of problems with their mental health system, as well. I'm from the US, but I've noticed people from the UK tend to be having a tougher time, overall.

    That's not right. I'm not sure what the suicide hotline numbers are in the US, but I'm sooo sorry that they did that to you. sad

    Hi, thank you everyone for your replies, it was horrible the way they treated me but luckily I fell to sleep last night before doing what I'd planned and have woken today with a positive attitude to start trying to take control of my life...sod the mental health! I'm going to do this by myself and feel a lot better for it. I'm not that naive to think i can change over night but I can't remember the last time I woke with this mindset, so I guess In a way I should thank the crisis team!

    Thank you again for your replies

    Unfortunately, the so-called help lines don't always really help. 

    Case in point.  My daughter received a call once from a friends mother who said she was going to commit suicide.  She immediately called a hotline but was told not to worry, that the ones who talk about it, never do it.  Two days later, the lady was dead.

    dondons, I'm so happy you are still with us.  Hang in there, many of us care about you.

    Hi, I know what you mean, i've attempted suicide a few times. I feel like life is not worth living.

    I try and push myself, but it only takes a little knock for me to fall back down.
