So again I have to write about the state of mental services in the UK. I’ve been waiting for almost three months for CBT, thankfully I’m no worse. It could be a different, I could have had crisis after crisis.
Yes my moods change regularly but I’m controlling them by shear force of will. This has not been easy at times. I’ve been so lucky to have great family and friends. However there have been moments where I have just wanted to say no more.
The mental health services are criminally under funded, how many must suffer. I know that funding for all of the NHS is tight, but surely it would make sense to help those who are in real need.
This isn’t just about me, this is about 20% of the population will struggle with mental health issues.
