So I currently have THE best clinical psychologist. Basically I was very honest with her. Told her I was suicidal along with all the other shit. So she referred me for more help.
Long story short, I now have the local crisis team number. I eventually built up the courage the other night to call them and not hang up. When I spoke to them, they didn't really ask much at all. Just the usual, whats your debts. Then how are you? Obviously i couldn't put into words what was going in and said very minimal, that i didn't know what to say or how to explain it. Her response was, do you think you need to see a psychiatrist. I said I didn't know. All i really needed was her to talk to me for a couple minutes to calm me down and ground me. But her results, after a phone call of all of 2 minutes 34 seconds, was "I think you should go to a and e. Do you have a way of getting there?" I said only taxi. And she said "ok. Is that is then?"
Well I guess so. Thanks. What really is the point in crisis team. I thought they were supposed ti take strain off a and e mental health people and be able to assess/ basic input what doesn't need to go to hospital.
Definitely put me off ever calling them again.
Sorry. This is just very negative and pissy. I just. Don't understand it.
