"Wound not recommend"

About: Berkshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust

I have had a series of particularly disastrous experiences with the mental health team.

I have been constantly fobbed off with words put in my mouth as justification and then passed from pillar to post to the point that i have given up on these services and humanity.

It really seems the relative team are disinterested and unable to cope with the huge and increasing demand for reasonable mental health services. As a result, all that is happening is patients' mental health are simply getting worse.

I can confirm this organisation has only made matter significantly worse for me personally as result.
