n yeah I know the feeling.
they are short staffed I think is the reason
something really serous happened to me before they took notice

maybe try writing them a stiff letter
saying you are seriously at risk
and ask them to reply to the letter

that sometimes gets more notice
because they have evidence that you are at risk then

Hope ur ok now.

I was thinking do I have to do something bad for them to take notice, which I shouldn't have to do to get some help

it might be possible to get ahead of that
why should we keep harming ourselves to get help ?

what about the Citizens Advice Bureau
maybe they can help ? or a mental health advocate

Hope you are feeling better. I've been there, Crisis helplines and Samaritans aren't the best tbh. It gets better if you stick around.

Hi,
Please don't risk harming yourself more, you should be able to call when you need to.
I'm so sorry you don't feel listened to by the crisis team.
Some staff just don't understand self-harm etc, hoping you feel better very soon.
Hugs

DyingAngel, this is quite common in my country, people needing urgent help get told to call certain numbers or go to a psychiatrist, but than get told of, or have to wait 3 to 6 months for an intake. Another 3 to 6 months before the treatment starts. Also the 'call someone, there's always somebody who wants to help you out' slogan, the only place I actually found that is on this site. And I found this site last night. It's a horrible search to find the correct person(s) who can help you.

I don't know if this is possible for you or will work in your case, but try to let a parent or sibling call them in your name. Let them say how afraid they are for your wellbeing. Sometimes a third person is the reason for them to take action.

DyingAngel, I'd rather call you FlyingAngel. I hope one day you will feel like one. Bless you.

Thank you for your reply

I have been looking online for help and have found a Counsellor which I will have to pay for and I cant really afford but I know she will help.

Ive given up with mental health services , I know they have staffing problems but im sure im not the only one who feels let down by them.
