    With the NHS system there are tiers of support. Tier 3 is local support usually involving a CPN, maybe a Psych is you're lucky, while Tier 4 is outreach and inpatient services.

    Currently, I'm working with both but I don't really get on with my CPN so I rely on my case manager (she's outreach) the most and my Psych who is also from Tier 4. I was an inpatient but I was discharged last Nov and they were supposed to withdraw the Tier 4 professionals by Jan, but they haven't even started.

    I'm freaking out because next week I have my review and I was told today by my case manager that they're going to start getting me to rely on people around me and not them and that I'll no longer be part of Tier 4 (which means no Psych and the only prof I like and talk to will leave).

    I don't talk to my friends or family at all. They simply can't help and I don't feel able to anyway so cutting off my contact with my profs (I can't e-mail my CM any more which was my main way of communicating) is basically leaving me to myself.

    I don't think I can keep going without them. :( I'd rather kill myself before all this starts so I don't have to go through it.

    Oh, also, soon they're going to be taking Tier 3 away as well because I'm almost 18 and I'll have to be moved to adult services. It'll be like starting all over again and I doubt I'll have a good relationship with any profs at that point.

    I can't take all this change and abandonment.

    NHS sucks. :mellow: Use SF - a much faster response time.

    I don't know about that so much ;) Can't say I feel able to rely on you guys at all really. I don't know anyone and I wouldn't want to negatively effect anyone who tries to help. I suppose I'll just have to be more active...but that's harder than it sounds!

    I'm feeling pretty hopeless, especially since 3 friends were supposed to come and visit me today but didn't and profs are actually ignoring me.
