I attended A and E after being taken there by ambulance after calling 111 for support. I had called the crisis team earlier in the day asking for help, just to be told to distract which is what I had been doing all day but I was exhausted.
Spoke to DPM in A and E who seemed understanding. The plan was to involve the crisis team the next day. Had a good chat to the crisis team the next day but no plan was made and I was passed back to my community mental health team.
The community mental health team did not call when they were supposed to, and only returned my call a number of hours later after calling them again asking for help.
I requested a new care coordinator due what I felt were the consistent dismissal of my concerns and problems, and have now been left completely without support.
I have called the crisis team a number of times over the weekend to be accused of thinking negatively and focusing on the troubles in my life when in fact I have been trying to keep myself busy and safe.
Feel completely alone and left without any support when I am at my most vulnerable.I continue to feel increasingly more suicidal but with no plan of support and dismissed by the crisis team.
Phone calls to PALS have also left me very frustrated, being advised to attend A and E, but then no further follow up support offered.
