"Excellent support with mental health crisis"

About: Broomfield Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as the patient),

A and E were fantastic, understanding, supportive and had a system that worked where a mental health crisis team worker was brought in from IAPT to assess and support. I had been very anxious and suicidal and the long intervention with IAPT arranged in A and E managed to calm me down enough to return home to take medication.
