[Bad therapy/CAMHS stories?]
Anonymous : Yes to the person with medication, that's what happened to me - I'm now under my GPs care for continuing medication
crisis team survey research
Good Evening Lovelies, Hope you’re all okay!
Basically, I am part of a charity in which we work towards changing for the better the way in which young peoples mental health services work. We recently reached out to camhs about the way they work and how they can change and they have taken our feedback on board and are currently re evaluating the way in which camhs work. So the next thing I think needs to be reviewed is The Camhs / Crisis / Home intervention service.
If you have had any experience via being assessed/had phone calls or meetings with crisis please take two minutes of your time to fill out this survey as it could help the way in which this service works.
Please don’t bitch at me for reblogging lolcamhs but it would be really cool if you could help out. :)
Anonymous : I'm now coming off my medication. I'm 17 (almost 18, I'll be 18 in October). Is it normal for CAMHS to have dispatched me/left me in the hands of my GP? I mean I'm extremely happy to be out of the system and feeling recovered, but (I'm a bit curious) just in case I suddenly get any unexpected side effects, is this normal?
Yeah I guess so, I’m not an expert on medication, I’m sure if you have any trouble you’re supposed to tell your GP and then they can assess if you need to see someone again. (Sorry for the long wait)
Also if my followers want to help this anon out?
Early morning appointments:
Anonymous : But you said you weren't in a good place right now and I don't wanna bring you down even more. I kinda miss CAMHS and regret telling my counsellor I'm fine... I'm just I don't know I don't wanna be here
I’m feeling better now anon, honestly you can message me.
Is my font too small? It’s okay for me but I realise that that might not be the case for you guys.
Anonymous : Hey so idk if you remember me but I'm that kid that was complaining loads about being in CAMHS and asking if I can discharge myself and what not anyway I'm finally out of if. 😃 it's a good thing I guess but I still get really bad suicidal thoughts and feelings and yeah the voices in my head are still there. I don't know what to do :( I just feel kinda alone if you get me
Have you tried a counsellor? Just to talk to, or if you like you can come off anon and you can have my Facebook/Email/phone number, I have Facebook open all the time and emails come to my iPod ect.
Anonymous : Is there anyway I can stop going to camhs? The woman I see says she won't let me stop but could I just stop going to appointments? I know it's wasting their time but I end up feeling worse after every appointment. It's for an ED and I'm 16 (if that makes a difference)...
If you’re sixteen then she can’t stop you, I’d suggest changing therapists first. I know you really don’t want to, I understand you completely, but I’ve heard of so many people regretting it afterwards. If you’re 100% done with CAMHS though, you can just stop going, just beware though that if you do need to go back they might not be very happy.
