Not getting the help I need

So I am an adult with cerebral palsy autism anxiety depression asthma and possibly some form of arthritis (waiting for referral) I have a child on the camhs waiting list for autism and adhd. The area I live has the closest school at 0.6 miles and closest bus/ shop/ doctors just over 1 mile away I do not drive and I do not have family or friends close enough to support me in the ways I need I also have a park right on my doorstep causing both me and my son crippling anxiety. I have asked my Gp to change meds as they not working they have said no they referred me to AMHT who said complex needs which i previously completed the 1-1 sessions but didn’t the group due to anxiety issues. I do not in any way feel I am getting the help I need. I am also trying to move house to be closer to family for support ect but getting nowhere as housing says it’s not an urgent issue 
many advice would be majorly appreciated

    Hello there @Sharkey26 and thanks for reaching out about this, I'm sorry to hear that you're not feeling supported at the moment. We'll be emailing a little later today, so please keep an eye out for that. 

    How long has your child been on the CAMHS waiting list, if I may ask?

    He’s been on it 3 years so far but I’ve been told he’s looking at another year or longer to wait still

    I kept having the phone put down on me with camhs with my daughter after having a firework shot at her head then attacked by an adult and her daughter 2 wks later and robbed of her iPhone. Then drugged, raped and punched and robbed in a bus station with CCTV and a security guard watching. All separate times but only months apart. Now she has panic attacks badly.
     The doctor gave me this so called camhs number which was wrong and they have never answered or rang back.
    I'm 5 months on
