I'm not sure what you mean by secondary mental health care..
Was the assessment with the mental health team?
Who are you due to see at the appointment tomorrow? (I mean their job title).
Sorry I can't be more helpful, just not quite understanding where you're at.

So it might be that the nurse is your care co-ordinator.
Even if she isn't, I think the approach will be the same.
Usually you'll meet with her every so often (in an agreed time frame.. maybe fortnightly appointments or more/less often depending on what you want and need).
Then it's a case of meeting with her and her helping put a care plan together for you.
