Hi all, have not been on for a while. I am in hospital where I have been for the past two and a half weeks after taking a hefty overdose. I don’t regret what I did, only the fact I am still here. It was my wish to just fall asleep and not wake up. I’m not under a section as I came in voluntarily...
hi guys I was just wondering the difference between being an informal and sectioned inpatient? I have been an informal inpatient before but now I'm being sectioned. Is there any difference in the way you are treated? Thanks :)
I'm currently staying informal (by a string) at a mh unit and I've opened up to a few staff as struggle but there are very few decent staff on the ward so off loading to the same 3 poor staff.
I have epilepsy also and I told a member of staff the other day I had a aura (warning) that's a seizure...

Hi yesterday i was assessed to see whether my setion 2 should be made a section 3 and the good news it was not even though i was totally honest with them about how i was feeling that i still wanted to end my life and that i was thinking about ways of how to do it. I contacted my daughter and...
This will probably seem stupid to write this post. I have been out of any kind of work a long time so feel a bit uncertain.

Can anyone please tell me if their CMH Services have a policy where they HAVE to have a Formal Psychological Assessment?
Is it not possible to have an informal meeting rather than a formal assessment, especially if one has had a specialist independent psychiatric assessment only 6mths...
