  1. Are people aware they are attending an NHS Mental Health service? Not a come when you fancy, appointments only when it's convenient for them service?

      that's poor, no wonder you are cheesed off.How about phoning to let you know that they won't be able to keep the appointment?

      Apologies Lauren, that was a bit insensitive of me, yes the community centres are good, my last shrink at the cmht trusted and believed in me and got my drivers license back, however ive been a patient in 5 mhu's in hertfordshire and only 1 did i feel 'im getting better in here'. But in their defence they are probably understaffed and underpaid for a 'not great' job.

      They are mickey. Unfortunately in those working conditions, sometimes bedside manner can go out the window, like most hospitals really. There really is a huge difference in MHU's which have better funding. Mental Health is woefully and dangerously underfunded and staff shockingly paid. Most people are completely shocked when they learn how much I earn! Glad to hear you are better :)
