And if so how?
That is so trueOne friend said to this advocate i'm intelligent and articulate i can represent myself the only reason i need you is they won't listen to me
Well maybe you are just lucky to have a psychiatrist or GP that does not believe in Section unnecessarily. But I though you had to take medication with schizophrenia because most people with that condition cannot manage with out it.Ramboghettouk you said on another thread you have Schizophrenia, which is said to be quite a severe illness. So I would have thought that your health trust would have let you have at least a psychiatrist. I don't understand why they haven't.
I've never been sectioned as one gp said it is unusual for a schitzoprenic never to have been sectioned, nowadays it doesn't come down to care it's legal responsibilities, the human rights act has a no of exceptions for mental illness but the corresponding balances only apply to someone sectioned under a countrys mental health act
I don't know unfortunately.i take meds never said i don't if you read my posts you'll see i'm highly pro med, i wonder why you get a certain amount of care considering the lack of resources
Is that right? Was the support worker from Social services or from a local NH charity?one support worker told me that my main concern was benefits and he was closing my case but they'd deal with any benefit forms, on receiving the esa50 i phoned him it was a different story though i didn't have anything in writing
So who are you seeing for support now Ramboghettouk?my support workers i gather aren't from social services or mental health charities but from arms length suppport organisations, i think it was the libs who arranged for money to be taken from the nhs for social support
My present support worker is i think for those at risk of homelessness though a lot of them have mental health issues
Every year they have to bid with the council for the contract to provide support services and the cheapest win, so it changes every year no continuity of care, saw broadway one of the old ones i used, they're staff went on strike and won over been expected to accept a pay cut
Another support service the guy said he had a one room flat and after paying rent only got 50 pounds a month more than me "And who wants to work for a measly 50 pounds" used to get quite nasty
