"I do not know where to go for support"

About: Claire House

(as the patient),

About 3 months ago I told Patient Opinion about how the computerised CBT course I did made me feel extremely distressed about abuse I suffered when I was a child and I have been having suicidal thoughts because of this.

They know about this but have failed to help or support me and are blaming me. When I went to Claire House a couple of months ago I was told they would refer me to the Recovery Team for support but then, a few weeks later, they changed their minds and caused even more distress.

The distress is getting worse and I do not know what to do or where to go to for support.

The way Claire House treat people who suffered abuse in childhood is disgusting and not fit for purpose.
