Losing all my support

edited February 2018 in Mental health issues
I have been diagnosed with a personality disorder and severe PTSD I have been in the system for years and last month due to lack of funding they withdrew my CPA , told me I need several years of psychological input but there aren't any psychologists,! So I've been told to go private which I can't afford due to contributing financially to my carers who come in due to my physical disabilities. I'm really struggling to cope! My gp is putting I a complaint but he said it won't change the fact there isn't any help. Feel totally abandoned and written off. I don't know what to do?

    I'm new on here. I'm having to send begging letters to get help for my son. In this day and age this is all so cruel.

    Hi @K80
    Welcome to the community, I am sorry you are having such a tough time.  Have you thought about contacting your MP?

    In some areas there are charities and individual counsellors/therapists who will counsel you for very little money. Also, if you live near a university that teaches psychology/counselling, they sometimes have a low-cost service. 

    Otherwise, are there any support groups near you? They're not professionals, of course, but it can be helpful to share with others.

    Self-help books can help. I've used one called Mind Over Mood, which was good. 

    Hope that might help...

    My son is going through the same thing. Apparently what you both suffer with is a grey area where there isn't the help .I know his won't be any help to yourself but my son committed a crime and is in court very soon . We are hoping the courts make it conditional he gets help. I really do feel for you.

    Have you tried charitable mental health organisations? Good luck
