Services in South lanarkshire

Hi - I've been using services in South Lanarkshire for 10 years now and I think they are very good. I have a great care team who I work with every week - if it wasn't for them I wouldn't have a life at all. They help me get out of the house as I'm agoraphobic and extremely anxious. What are your experiences of using the services?

The community services are good but my local psychiatric assessment team don't seem to take me seriously.
