I really dislike the samaritans service. Every time I've phoned it's just made me feel worse. Has anyone else had this problem?

I was suffering from a psychosis and really really exhausted. They just laughed about my situation.When I was in crisis I called the National Suicide Prevention Hotline. This one woman told me I wasn't cleared to use the number and hung up on me! So I don't feel safe calling them if I'm suicidal now. I'm sorry the Samaritans make you feel worse. What do they say to you?
samaritons is designed as a servic for suicidal people not severely psychotic mentally illl people though mental health services now refer people to themI was suffering from a psychosis and really really exhausted. They just laughed about my situation.
What a holes. That angers me. I'm sorry they did that to you. Neither of the crisis lines we use are helpful. I wonder how many other people they treated like that? Probably a lot more than just us.I was suffering from a psychosis and really really exhausted. They just laughed about my situation.
but some mentally ill people are extremely isolated don't have people they know and trustI personally don't trust any online or anonymous mental health service after what happened with better help, better to just be vulnerable to people you know and trust, everything else is risky...
