My husband went on a 5 day drinking binge, was depressed, upset with mortal thoughts. I was given the telephone number of DART who then referred me to OASIS.
I was offered an appointment the following day to see a counsellor at OASIS and have seen the same person on a one-to-one level. Her support has been tremendous along with the doctors who diagnosed my husband with severe depression.
With the correct medication my husband has felt the best he has done in the last 8 years. This should have been sorted sooner but it was only at this point that my husband knew he had a problem and needed help.
DART could have been quicker in seeing my husband. They saw him for an initial assessment the week it happened, but has been over a month to him having an appointment. Thankfully he hadn't relapsed in this time.
