Re: MHCNSW Consultation: tell us how it is

Yes I do. Because i don't want to bother people, i dont want to annoy people and i don't want to be "that" daughter that is messed up in the head. So i just push it all away and pretend im fine so  no one asks

Re: MHCNSW Consultation: tell us how it is

Imagine there were no issues like money, waiting lists, distance or access to technology. If you were going to seek help or support for something, what would you want that process to be like in an ideal world?

 

- easier access to psychologists. I can only afford so many sessions after medicare rebates because they can be expensive

- more support for 18- 25/30? 

- more youth wards along the north coast of nsw. 

- people understanding you and not thinking you're crazy or selfish. 

- halfway houses between hospital and the real world to help get back in to society a bit easier. It was hard being in hospital for so long and then being expected to function automatically. It's a huge change from being so safe to so many past triggers all at once. 

- More staffing in community teams.

Oliverose: I think a lot of people feel that pressure too yr not alone in that. Perhaps it comes back to the stigma of mental illness and lack of awareness. We wouldn't feel the need to hide a physical injury! Glad you have some people in your life you can talk to properly..

Re: MHCNSW Consultation: tell us how it is

i guess a way that i really deal with my problems and everything that goes on in my life is dancing. because it allows you to express your emotions and be seen from a different perspective. Its great because you really have to conv=centrate and it really takes your mind off the things that are going on in your life
