    yep, i have a CPN assigned by the hospital and she is my number one support. i think she has helped me more than the all the psychiatrists, together! her help is very practical - teaching me about depression, activity scheduling, helping me with paperwork, developing a care plan. about paperwork and such, she made a bunch of phone calls to get the right forms sent to me (i didn't even know who to call) and then helped me fill out the papers.
