I think it depends on the area. I know it’s not offered as a first line treatment but I do know of one person receiving it on the nhs after many years of failed treatments. I also know people that have been down right refused. Like all mental health care it’s a post code lottery

By post code lottery I mean it is fully dependent on where you live. It’s a saying that means that you have to be lucky like winning the lottery on what is available in your area

There is no family or friends, only option is to traval back and forth, and ready to do that from E13.
