I was let out home, big mistake on their part I can't do this. I need to be sectioned or I won't make it.

    Hi Nicola, you can self present at hospital and ask to be admitted if that's what you feel you need. What did they say yo you when you'd been assessed? Have you been prescribed any meds and if so how long have you been on them? You really need to dig down when you feel suicidal or have the urge to self harm, you can and will get through this! You are stronger than the think.

    Please reply and let us know how you are doing and if you go back to hospital.

      Rang police in tears asking for help they took me to lynfield mount where they spoke to me. Said because I'm not having any psychotic episodes and that I have capacity that they can't admit me to hospital. I literally begged but they wouldn't I lost it and tried to run off but police stopped me.. I even managed to self harm in toilet even tho police was apparently watching me. Continued chat whilst blood all over. Asked to hand over razor so did. Home treatment team they've said.
