    You need to refer yourself. In the UK you can call NHS Information Line on Tel 111 and they will arrange a Crisis Team to visit you. They can also arrange calls from Social Services via the Crisis team

    Yes, as the previous poster has said, there are people who will come and see you if you are housebound. A lot of people don’t seem to understand that you can be mentally housebound, as well as physically housebound.

    The crisis team, along with the Community Mental Health Team need to know how you’re feeling so they can assess you and discuss with you what you would like and how to go about achieving these personal goals.

    You could also request a home visit from your gp
