Mental health services are disappointing us

Since COVID I see such a decline in mental health services. It seems like a ghost town in the building n I’m so disappointed because they are failing us. I can’t even see the nurse no more just to check in n get my vitals n such. What’s going on behind the scenes is now a complete mystery. Do they even work these days cause I haven’t seen any connection with us in months. Mental health people such as ourselves are being let down majorly so what do u guys want back from ur facility that u want back n what do u miss from back in the pre COVID years ?????

Yes, a global pandemic will cause a few setbacks.

They are all working from home where I live. They only come out in emergencies and to do depots.

Yes most are working from home where I live too which is only so effective in practical matters where you need in person assistance. Here case managers have been given the covid vaccine as they are seen as front line workers yet still most seem to work from home. I haven’t really needed my case manager all that much through covid so our weekly check ins have been sufficient for me but I wonder whether others are getting the support that they need under the circumstances. xo, j

It would be great if we can make a petition about how we feel very slighted an were missing out on needed mental health needs

Does it show that maybe they really don’t care about us n in for the money? I feel more about my fellow mental health companions the they really do. The cats now out of the bag.

They don't get paid enough to be doing it for the money and anyway it's a darned hard job.

Not sure what you expect them to do?
If they were seeing a lot of people, the risk of catching and spreading the virus would be very high. I don't think they like it the way it is, only offering phone support but they have to follow the rules in place.
In my experience, which I appreciate isn't everyone's, they are doing the best they can.

There is a mental health crisis going on. N I can’t sit back n just act like we as the mental health comunity are being slighted. Are issues are very serious an just one episode that could be treated is too much? This is a very serious topic an I hope they figure this out cause it may last awhile n I personally empathize anyone having trouble which could be avoided
