CMHT questions???
« on: October 06, 2011, 08:10:47 PM »
Been to see doctor today about things getting worse. He is referring me to CMHT. Never had any experience of this before. Can someone tell me more about them what they do and what to expect xx
why is life always so hard?
what have i done to deserve this?
why has my life changed?
what can i do to go back in time?
go back to the place where you both were
both taken away from me,
but in very different ways
please can you take me away from this hell

It's great you went for more support, even more great that you'll be getting it. Could you google your local CMHT, they usually have web pages telling you more about them, that might help you. Good luck.

I seem to remember that CMHT is what us older (I think it's over 18s) people get referred to instead of CAMHS.

Its basically a team made up of psychs, cpns, social workers and support workers who will try and offer you support\care. All cmhts are different and some better ran than others maybe ask ur dr for some more info xx
behind closed doors, all is not what it seems,
you only have to realise with one look at me.
to see things that you didnt first see,
like the person i once was-i use to be.
behind closed doors is where it will remain,
now her sanity is gone she is no longer sane.

im under the care of my local cmht. was reffered bby gp in aug, 2 weeks later had an appointment for an assesment with  pyschiatrist and social worker. then went back week later to have assesment with psychologist to look at appropriate therapy treatment, then had further meeting to discuss their team meeting where i had to fill in aninventory as they think i may have borderline personality disorder. have to wait till end of month to see the results with consultant pyschiatrist and to look at best way forward.

so my expereince is positive in that they are looking after me well, bit rubbish having to be assesed but thats so they know how to help. also have access to crisis line which is nice, as they have access to my notes immediately. never really know what to say,but its nice to talk to someone sometimes.hope this helps. :hug1:

don't worry there's no need to panic.. they will just ask you where your at now and how you think they might be able to help.. they will be used to speaking to people who are nervous so don't worry about being nervous .. hope it goes OK xxx
