I told an NHS mental health person that I self harm & sometimes have suicidal thoughts. He can only see me once/twice a month. Why no urgency to help?

I told an NHS mental health person that I self harm & sometimes have suicidal thoughts. He can only see me once/twice a month. Why no urgency to help?

It's all relative: What you describe IS an URGENCY response compared to the routine session every 8 weeks or longer offered to many in my area. I agree that many people (like you) suffer from distress that requires massive prompt response. But the world has decided that they don't have the resources to provide such care. People deserve better - but it seems they need to demand it of society. I hope you find support. ...Read more

Dr.: Dr. Kardener made excellent points. Clearly, your behavior was meeting a need, even if you did not realize this. However, the way you met the need had many negative consequences (your job; your reputation and your self-esteem). It is important to get a handle on this. Counseling is a very good approach. Hopefully, it will allow you to understand your behavior and enable you to find healthier ways to meet your needs. Take care. ...Read more

Is there a psychological component to the clinic room wait? I find that the longer I wait the more flustered and incoherent I become

Some people make a personal interpretation out of something that may have nothing to do with their self-worth. A lot of different things can hold a doctor up! Try to suspend judgment until you know what caused the delay. ...Read more
