"Where there are experiences there's always positives as well as negatives"

About: Cumbria Partnership NHS Foundation Trust / Adult mental health

(as a service user),

My concern, I've called it just that, because there’s always a lot of negatives in services, and not just in mental health. I, for one want to say, my experiences these days are positive ones. If anyone is as old as I am, and had to go through the hell I did, and today come out the other end I am sure they would say as I do, that life is well worth shouting to say, I am proud of the service I receive and proud I can work along these services to help improve for everyone else. It wasn't all negative as I wouldn't be here to be able to tell you. But I for one need to explain services are so much better for me and in tune with the patient, myself. I do hope that if there are more like myself who agree with my opinion; our modern day mental health services are a credit to not just me. I wonder if people of younger ages have any positive opinions?

Thank you for your comments and enthusiasm Ecclescake. Experience changes your responses to life and it is good to see that you are able to adapt and move on whilst working alongside services to help improve them for others. We hope that young people will also use this facility to share their opinions and stories.
