Looking back

Sometimes I feel that when I engaged with the Community Care Services, they did more harm than good.

I derived little benefit from the contact.  I thought it was the best thing to do at the time.  I needed support, and still do.

§

But they were not the right people.  They did not seem to grasp what it really means to live with mental illness, and also try to hold down a job, or be part of a family.

§

I tried to explain these things, but they did not understand what I meant.

I felt that a lot of their ideas were out of date, and not relevant.

There was no confidentiality.

§

I was also subject to abuse on occasion.  If I complained about this, I was dismissed.
