I think they use different names in different places, was it the Recovery Team, or the Community Mental Health Team?

Have you seen the psychiatrist? That may be the next step, to find a diagnosis and see what treatments / therapy may be suitable.

No it sounded like a name with numbers in or something she said it to fast.

I think the names of services vary depending on what area you live in, so not entirely sure what the team you're seeing could be, but it sounds like you're probably being referred for therapy as part of your treatment.

Is this something that is worrying you? Perhaps if it's on your mind you could phone your CPN and ask for some clarification, though i'm pretty sure it's nothing to be worried about. It sounds like it could really help. :)

A diagnosis will probably come when they send you to a psychiatrist, they usually have one on a mental health team. There are usually a couple of meetings with members of the mental health team that come first, though, they put together a file on you.

But it's important to remember that diagnoses come and go... Most mental health conditions are only loosely specified, and so in some cases one psychiatrist will give one diagnosis, and another psychiatrist another. It's only a label in the end, a shorthand they use.

What is much more important is your story, your symptoms and your experiences. They say a lot more about you than any psychiatric label.
