"Extreme anxiety and depression"

About: Lanarkshire Community Services / Occupational Therapy

(as a service user),

I have had depression spanning over 16 plus years. 

In March April of 2020 after being off meds for around a year  I became scared of other people of going outside irrational thinking paranoia extreme lethargy extreme pain in back hips feet knees and feet. Short tempered and impatient. Fearful. 

The weekly sessions on the phone were good, speaking about anything i wanted to, being guided by occupational therapist. I was pleased with the scoring system for before and s after, as well as my OTs attitude and friendliness. I appreciated saying what you couldn't say to loved ones, knowing i could access this again anytime. We could do with a better system for sharing documents and its a shame having to stick to one day per week

Thanks Amanda this service is definitely something I see myself using in the future again if needed. What a reassurance it is to know it’s there if or when I needed. After 16 plus years of having mental health problems on and off what an incredible difference it has been this time due to the help of this service
