"Mental Health Service in Taunton"

About: Somerset Partnership NHS Foundation Trust / Adult community mental health

(as the patient),

Extremely unhappy with the way I was treated by crisis team in Taunton when in distress recently having had to be taken to Musgrove hospital then came out feeling even worse after a five minute rushed talk to a member of the crisis team, then having to be found by police in a suicidal state unaware of where I was going, in the early hours after reported missing by worried family.

Taken to a cell as no beds available, then having to wait more than 18 hours to be assessed and then sent home with no support or phone call. I think it's uncaring, bad management and lack of staff organisation and it feels like they don't care if I end up dying.
