    How to come off Community Treatment Order and Abilify injection

    Hello Mental Health Forum, I am new to this forum. I'm looking to get some help regarding my situation and condition. I have been on a Community Treatment Order for 2 years now and the Mental Health Review Tribunal recently renewed the CTO for another 4 months. They have diagnosed me as having...

    I need to take a more active role in my healing, if not for myself, then for the children I work with. For a long time now I have not allowed myself to be in touch with my deepest self, because it is so terribly painful. I know that my deepest self yearns for connection with God, yet the...

    I Kind Of Want To Start Going To Church Again

    I kind of want to start going to church again, but every one I look at online I think, "No, not that one." If you are an oldie on here you might know a little about my history with the church and clergy. I just keep wishing there was a Celtic Christian community here. I am aware of the Iona...

    I created this account a couple of weeks ago, but only now decided to post for the first time, so I thought I should start here. I'm actually quite acclimatized to the forum, as I have been lurking for quite some time and have checked out a few hundred threads already, but it's good to finally...

    I thought that I would just take the opportunity to introduce myself- Hi, I'm Manisha! I'm not entirely new to forums but I am new to this one. I'm 18 and I have anxiety. I guess I wanted to find a community of people similar to me. Eventually, if I feel confident enough, I may feel compelled...

    Facebook Disillusionment

    Besides my family, I don't have any real friends on there, though I technically have hundreds. It just reminds me how little community I actually have. It's kind of sad. All the people who mean something to me, I keep up with through other means.

    The talking circle

    I've come across this is an interesting method of healing communities, and thought it was worth mentioning. It's basically when a group of people come together, sit in a circle and talk. There is a talking stick which gets passed around, each person who has something to say gets their turn. It...

    When sh*t hits the fan

    So I just thought that I'd make a post on this....... I was thinking about the possibilities of suicide a couple days ago, I could not sleep properly and was worrying about my DLA coming to an end this year and being forced into work if I lose my chances of getting PIP which is highly likely and...

    If I went to prison would I still be forced to take Antipsychotic medication.

    If I went to prison would I still be forced to take Antipsychotic medication. I'm on a CTO and I'm forced to take Antipsychotic medication, I don't want to take it anymore. I'm thinking about getting myself arrested and getting remanded to prison. I feel it's my only way out of taking the...

    Hello from Aus :)

    Hey all :) Not great at talking about myself but it felt rude to not write an introduction post. I could tell you my various physical and mental ailments, or how my childhood was - but I don't want to be defined by all of that. I will say that my initial reason for joining is to see if anyone...

    This is the introduction post I was suggested to create.

    Thank you for accepting me into your community. I don't know who or what I am really. Sure I have a "name" I was ascribed at birth, though I'm not very trusting of people lately- so I'm not going to disclose it here. I have a question(s) to ask and I think that this community would be...
