"Referral to mental health services"

About: North Staffordshire Combined Healthcare NHS Trust

(as a service user),

After being referred to mental health services for the second time against my wishes I have now been discharged after requesting my discharge for a second time in less then 2 years.

I had no wish to engage again but the mental health professionals decided otherwise & ignored my express wishes & went ahead without my consent. My experience with North Staffordshire Combined Mental Health Services has left me feeling desperate & I have self harmed so many times because I feel nothing but despair & a sense of worthlessness.

I have no faith or trust whatsoever left in this trust & would never recommend them to anyone.
