Help/Advice on how to get help from CRHTT/CMHT

I've posted the full story on a thread in the SI and Vets boards, so I'll just put the short version here.

My MH has spiralled out of control and I'm scared. Went to GP, he agreed to a referral to CMHT but I was told it would be weeks before the ball even got rolling. Things got worse, I went back to GP. He was very concerned, told me he was referring me to be assessed by CRHTT at local psych hospital and warned several times that they would likely keep me as inpatient.

Went to assessment, spent 2 hours talking about very difficult things, then I was told to just wait for CMHT and was sent home in an even worse state than I arrived in. My partner got concerned later in the evening and got me to call out of hours GP who called CRHTT who told them they'd already sent me home and I just needed to wait.

I'm so scared about what I'm going to do next. Does anyone have any idea on how to get help because right now I'm being turned away by everyone.

Psych liaison in A&E?

They could counter the CRHTT decision maybe?

Or does your trust have an out of hours mental health number?

It's all through out of hours GP number here, I contacted A&E and they referred me to my GP or out of hours GP if I couldn't wait. I feel so lost in all this, it's the first time I've ever reached out to MH services

The problem with MH services at the moment is that they are really overstretched at the moment so it's not a case of them not wanting to help you or anything, it is just literally that they are struggling to deal with the caseloads they have.

When I was waiting for support it was suggested that I keep in contact with my GP just so I was getting some level of support. I know it isn't a perfect solution but it might be worth trying.

Failing that, have you tried contacting any local mental health charities or Mind as they may be able to offer you something while you wait.
