I was referred to the mental health team four weeks ago, suffering from depression and suicidal thoughts. I was initially seen by a psychiatrist and a CPN for an assessment and I continued to see the CPN once a week for the last four weeks. Today, I saw the psychiatrist again and after he diagnosed me with Borderline Personality Disorder, they discharged me from their care!! I get that the CPN was part of the assessment team but I can't understand why I've just been dumped on my own now! I was told to contact the complex needs service for psychotherapy which I have done and they have told me they have a waiting list until March. So what on earth am I supposed to do for support over the next three months? I'm honestly in shock and I feel so let down.. What am I supposed to do?
