I was wondering if anybody else is entitled to direct payments?

In it common for people with severe and chronic mental health conditions to be offered direct payments from social services?

Yes, I get DP for respite stays. Lots of hoops now though, it took 9 months to get sorted after several appts - social care, financial assessments.
