I recently got referred to a specialist Psychiatrist unit at my local hospital, the first appointment was today. It finally feels as though things are pointing in the right direction now.
My medication has been changed and I've got 'specialists' helping me along.

The main reason for my post though is to see if anyone has any experience with "Day Hospitals' with regards to mental health.
Apparently I will be required to attend for 2 weeks, 5 days per week, from 9am-3pm.
Does anyone have any information that you think might help me? I'm kindve clueless as to what it's all about.
My Psychiatrist did talk about it briefly, but It was all a bit of a blur to me.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Antonia,
I'll be brief, but MY GP referred me after CMHT regular appointments and various changes in medication were getting me nowhere.
Hope you're well.
