"Troubles navigating Asperges and Depression Cocktail"

About: Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust

(as the patient),

I was diagnosed with Asperges in February 2013, I was diagnosed with Depression in June 2013. Because these two, a condition and disease fight each other like a rash and tight spandex, it's very difficult to get help and differentiate the symptoms of Depression in regards to what is filtered through Asperges and what is straight to the point depression. I have had help before but it's very difficult for me to explain this, what feels like an alternate reality to everyone else's world.

Response from Communications and Marketing Manager, Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust

Hello John - thank you for getting in touch.

We don't actually provide mental health services so it may be that another organisation, such as Tees, Esk and Wear Valleys NHS Foundation Trust, would be in a better position to help.

We would be happy to put you in touch with the team there. Would you be able to make contact with us and we can directly you most appropriately? Our Patient Experience Team details can be found here:


Many thanks.
