Hi I am 51 and had an acute psychotic episode 2 years ago, I was sectioned under the mental health act at my local hospital but recovered quite quickly and was allowed to go home. I have been coming off the medication they put me on over the last 6 months but have been suffering from depression and anxiety off and on ever since the episode. I have lost faith in the mental health professionals I have seen over the last 2 years (NHS and private) and would just like to talk to people with similar problems and ways of overcoming anxiety and depression. Here's hoping!

Hi Fran and :welcome:. I've just woke up because I've been in bed with a headache (and 4 cats) and thought your name said Frank Ifield... Hope we can help and it is really very friendly here. :tea:

Libra - everytime I see your name it makes me smile because it looks like Libral and the Bristolians add an L on to the end of the words that end in a vowel. As in - "that's a good ideal". :)
