    I woud just stick to the facts, like you have been in Hospital for a number of Week due to agressive mental health issues. If you can, go to Citizens Advice, they will help you write what is needed on your PIP. Further more, how old is your Son? If you intend to hurt someone, or your self. Your Doctor/Mental Health worker, has a duty of care to provide you with the relevant treatment.

    Sorry, I probably phrased it wrong, What I ment was, just write what your Dr diagnosed you with. Did you discharge yourself? Can your Son attend with you if you went to your next appointment? That back up hopefully would get you re commited.

    Hi Mondeey1

    Just wondering if you have a CPN or other professional around you.

    It sounds like you need a lot of help with your problems, and I'm sorry

    to read how bad things are.

    Coming to the pip I would tell them about the problems your having

    But I would be carefully how you say or write things. Definitely don't tell them about the knife

    And your son. You can tell them about the car and the feelings your having.

    Be open and direct but also be carefully.

    If you are having a face of with the pip take someone with you

    Who knows you and your situation, the best bet will be a professional

    Hope all goes well and good luck.

    I'm hear if you need to talk:-)
