"Everything went wrong..."

About: Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust / Child and adolescent mental health

(as the patient),

Basically from a young age I was bullied, and in my fair share of fights. I went my whole life blaming myself to which, I was left with no friends, and nobody to turn too, My parents never knew how I really felt, all they knew was I was upset a lot.

I went to my doctors after 2 years of depression, and explained all how I wanted to kill myself and overdose, etc. I felt so isolated from everybody else. He referred me to CAMHS in Gainsborough. And I went in I felt so nervous, but everyone seemed so friendly.

The only problem is, I had one appointment and never really heard from them again to check how I was doing. ( I feel so down lately, CAMHS was the only people I turned to.
