i just wondered how much time your CPN had off work

a CPN i had for 2 years had months at a time off ,then went on holiday to Australia back packing

a CPN i had for 15 years would have months off at a time almost every year

and my current CPN of 3 years had 14 weeks of ,then six weeks now 10 weeks
usually it is sick leave

im wondering if they can't cope with me x

i had a therapist for 5 years and she never had any sick leave x

Hi Lu

I think that it's really unlikely that this is down to you. In my experience CPNs often seem to have long periods of time off sick, often with their own mental health problems. I think that this has more do do with the state of mental health funding in the NHS and being over worked and under constant pressure than it does any individual on their caseload.

Hello there Lu,
Nowt to do with you at all I am sure.

I think it is overstretched services and it affects people's own mental health, I agree with Cazcat.

When someone has a huge case load and are good at their job, the stress of trying to do the best you can really takes it out of you. I think this might be the case with your more recent CPN's.

It is not you at all,:hug1:

My cpn was going on the sick all the time so in the end I phoned cmht and told them that I did not want to see her anymore. They have now given me another cpn who cant really be bothered with me and is here for only 2 mins at a time.
