Treating mental illness.

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a mental illness, what treatment was offered to you?  Did you have to find your own private support, or was it available on the NHS? Was it long or good enough? Was it what you expected? 

Many of the things the NHS says they offer for most mental illnesses are,

  • TalkingTherapy, 
  • Medication,
  • Inpatient Hospital treatment,
  • Regular cpn meetings,
  • Crisis teams,
  • Day hospitals,
  • Support workers,
  • Calls,
  • Smaritains/ phone call.

What is the best, what have you been offered, were you offered anything else, did you go privately or through NHS?

What was the thing that helped you the most? Are you in to recovery and If so how did you start/reach recovery. 

Stay strong.
