Mental health issues

hayleigh Member Posts: 1 Listener
Hi my name is hayleigh. I suffer from severe mental health issues. I have done since I was 13. I am nearly 26 now and mental health is getting worse. I have asked to go on a depot of depixol but have not heard back from my psychologist. I really am at a low point. Don't know what to do anymore. I hate the way I feel about myself

    Hi @hayleigh
    Welcome to the community! I hope you find it useful! 
    Has your Psychologist tried CBT with you? 
    If not could be worth a try! 
    I had it for my anxiety and worked well. 
    Keeping a worry diary can help to think less about things that play on your mind :) 

    Happy to help if I can

    Hi Hayleigh.  Sorry to hear you feel low.  If your mental health issues are as a result of trauma then have you ever had any EMDR - eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing - therapy?  There is also evidence that doing therapy that works through the body can be effective for those who have experienced trauma.  Either way I hope you find some effective help and can get your life back on track.  Emma
