Me and My Mental Health Story

Hi... I'm Chloe, I'm 18 years old and I'm from the UK

I used to love playing football and multiple sports. I say used too... When I was 13 or 14, everything changed for me, but life went on as normal. Well from the outside it would have seemed normal, but for me, it was far from it.

Mental Health is something that is extremely stigmatised in the UK and across the world. This is my ongoing battle with mental health and what my experience of being in the UK mental health system is like. Everyone's experiences are different... but here's my story.



12. Me and My Life Since Discharge

Not gunna lie, I have been struggling a lot since I got discharged from CAMHS. Within a week I had taken a small overdose again, with my self harm getting worse and the cuts deeper. Less than two weeks since I got discharged, I was at a GP appointment getting a referral for CMHT since I wasn't coping at all. Everything has got worse since, I have been put on a planned break at college meaning I am unable to go in other than to see the welfare co-ordinator and the assistant head (who is also the head of safeguarding and welfare)

The GP said the referral to CMHT should be done soon and that I should have an appointment before January, but other than that, I have nothing. I had counselling at college once but after that the person I had for it got a new role within the college (typically), so yeah, I'm basically back to square one... again. I will be keeping this going with CMHT as well but just got to see how long that takes I guess.
