Maudsley Day Patient Experiences and questions
I'm in the referral process for SHOPs (self harm out patient) at the maudsley.
It's a national service that's day patient. So I wondered if anyone here had experience of being there before? seeing as it's not restricted to my local area.
I'm also trying to find out, if i get accepted what days they do because i need to choose my modules for next year at uni and will need to arrange my timetable around it.
I'm quite nervous. my social worker said it was 1 day a week - but since i did reading it could be 3+ days a week. I'm scared for this because i'm very unreliable at getting anywhere regularly because of mood dependent behaviour, mainly. -- and because i get very very anxious about people, and find going out very draining.
Has anyone been? or been to anything like this before?
and what are your experiences of it?
