Hello everyone

Just found this website.

I have an assessment with the mental health team next week and i wondered if anyone could help me with what to expect please. I know it will take about an hour but that is all i know. I do know i need help but i am stressing out about it a bit.

Thank you

An assessment is just to see how you are right now, who you should be seeing, gives you a chance to speak etc. It shouldn't be anything bad.

Welcome to the forum.

Thank you for the reply, and the welcome. I have what is called reactive depression. I have suffered from clinical depression since my teens. I have lost two children in the last five years which has started off the reactive depression. I really need to talk to somebody about this as i don't know which way to turn. I don't know how anyone can help me get through this.

Do you have any form of counselling or a good relationship with your GP? Have you tried Cruse (they could be called something else by now), they can be very helpful.

Hello Dollit. Thank you for your reply. I have had 5 sessions with a counsellor through my GP but no more than that. I will try Cruse. Thank you very much for that, i will get in touch with them tomorrow.

A lot of us here have a blog spot in the journals area - everyone uses them for different things. I love having mine there when I need it. Also if you identify with someone and want to talk privately there's always private messages.

Follow this link - this is where we all blog, pop in and have a look, leave a comment on a few people's blogs and see what you think. My blog is really a little boring but every now and then Paradox and Lucid pop in for the evening and we have a little riot.

Your blog is what you want to make it, your space but with input from people who care.
