I have been a user of the mental health services since I came off long term (24yrs.) tranquilliser use. While they were supposed to be helping me with withdrawal etc. by almost demanding I take anti depressants I went and got an Hons, degree in psychology. Im not depressed,never was,just bloody frustrated that I cant do the things everybody takes for granted because of anxiety.
I am now an elected governor of the NHS Social Foundation Trust and I will do all I can to make sure this crap system is changed. Neither the Chairman nor the Executives of the Trust frighten me.If nothing changes I will resign and go to the press.
If anyone needs help re tranquilliser use please dont hesitate to ask.
