"support after being discharged from hospital"

About: Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust / Adult mental health (inpatient)

(as a staff member posting for a patient/service user),

I was admitted to redwood 2 after becoming unwell, but after a few days I was asked either to go home or be transferred to QMC. As my friend was on the ward in QMC, I went home. I have since been told that the ward that I was on was very busy and that they needed to make room for extra male patients.

I have been supported by my CPN and the home treatment team, and I am writing this to say a big thank you to the whole team at stone bridge. They have been amazing, nothing has been too much trouble and they have supported me well, even when I requested a visit at the weekend, they still came.

I would also like to thank the staff at the involvement centre for also giving me encouragement and support.

Without the extra support that I have received, I am sure that I would not be going on my holiday next week, as I feel sure that I would have either self harmed or tried to commit suicide, as I have really been struggling to stay safe. Thank you all so very much and I'm sure my husband thanks you all to for keeping me safe.
